If on the 1901 ship manifest it says the family is coming from Oppido what is the likliehood that Oppido is where they were born and not just the area they were living in at the time they immigrated?

Its always possible but have you posted the manifest somewhere? I would really like to see if before commenting. Can you link it or point us to where it is?

Well, people did not move around as much back then, so your chances are good that the place of residence was the place of birth. When they moved, it was usually close by. However, with that in mind, my grandmother emigrated from a town that was about 60 km from where she was born. I have other instances of that in my family too. To compound that, they got her place of birth wrong on the manifest. They put Padula and it was Paduli. Those are two different towns, two different provinces. So use the manifest as a starting point.

Although I found no town named just Oppido, I located two possibles:

Oppido Lucano, province: Potenza - region: Basilicata
Oppido Mamertina, province: Reggio Calabria - region: Calabria

With Biff's infofrmation in mind, look at the people above and below your family members. If you are lucky, they may be from the same town or area. I have found in many of my family manifests they often traveled with others from the same town. I have traced many people this way.
