I just found the following information on the new Ellis Island website www.ellisisland.com I believe this information is for my great-grandfather, Emmanuele Solari: Date of arrival 16 May 1892 Age on arrival 24 years Ship of Travel: Fulda Port of Departure: Genoa I am less sure about my great-grandmother, but the folowing record sounded very likely: Angela Cuneo Date of arrival 24 March 1902 Age on arrival 28 Ship of travel: Kaiserin Maria Theresia Port of Departure: Genoa
My great grandfather went first to Stockton, Calif, where he had a brother. He received his citizenship in Cincinnati, Ohio about 1897. My great-grandparents settled in Brooklyn, NY, where my grandmother was born. I proudly display their picture on my wall. It is my most valuable possession.
