Geneablogy: An occasional Journal about our experiences exploring our heritage

My friend Mario found Laura's great great grandmother Lucia Nannariello and her daughter Mariantonietta (listed on the manifest as Mariangela) on the Ellis Island web site. They came over on the SS Liguria, arriving in New York on 6 Nov 1902. This time, Lucia's name was mistranscribed as Marmariello. I had found an earlier entry for them on the SS Lahn on 27 Oct 1902, but their records had been crossed out, which Mario pointed out to me. He suggested that they probably had missed the ship and come over on the next available one. The short interval between the two records would certainly make that a plausible explanation. Thanks a ton, Mario!
