Hi Bette, thank you for the information “…of 379 North St, Rochester, NY as the destination on many manifests. Very true...because the Cappellino's who were at this address handled much of the paperwork for the Sicilian immigrants coming to Rochester. The incoming immigrants used this address but did not actually live there.”
So now, I have a question (for my training)… Only Italian from Sicily gave that address?
Just today, I was talking with my friend …about many of the things others have found…about his family and the stories. He was so excited to find out his dad’s mothers name. In 81 years he had never known her name. We still can-not find his mothers Mom and Dad’s name… (Her dad and abusive-stepmother raised her…) She was born in Colorado, her parents were born somewhere in Italy. My friend told me today that just before his mother died… she was crying because she could not remember what her mother’s face look like… So sad… she was the kindest woman I have ever known. Thank you again, Mary
