Subject: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] Ship Port Surprise

 

My Sicilian grandmother came to the US twice - once as a baby, and again as a teenager. All these years we assumed she came through NY, because that is where her mother's brother lived and where they settled. Since there are so many films from her town, I've concentrated on the vital records and never attempted to learn her ship info. Lo and behold - you know the old saying about what happens when you 'assume' something. Today I found out that my grandmother, Anna Dina, came to the USA with her mother and sister on the ship Palermo which arrived in Boston, MA on July 26, 1913. For the life of me, I can't imagine why they went to Boston - I don't believe there were any relatives there. Maybe the only ship leaving Palermo when they were ready to go? Guess I'll never know. The document is on its way to me; someone found it in the Goshen, NY archives. It's called 'My Lawful Entry Into the United States" and includes the names and DOB of her older children; this document was filed as part of her petition for US Citizenship in 1933. It's funny how things drop in your lap sometimes, when you least expect it!

There are many ALONGI / ALONGE in Ventimiglia di Sicilia [Palermo Province] too. Let me know if you find any connection to that city - one of my DINA relatives married an ALONGE / I and they settled in Marlboro, NY - where many of them still live. My eldest uncle is married to a Nancy Alonge.
