Biff,
Thanks very much! My cousin Trish will love this. You have found her great grandparents.

We did find the manifest for her grandmother and uncle Tommaso last week & I have been trying to find them in the Detroit city directories but no luck so far - Don's List only has 1845,1846 & 1928. They were already in the 1924-25 Auburn directory.

What we can't find is her grandfather Vincenzo's manifest of 1913. Family said he worked in various places before earning enough to bring his wife and son to America in 1920.

Thanks again,
Dave

I've not had any luck thus far finding his manifest either. He might have come in through Canada or another port.

This MIGHT be Vincenzo's father's birth information. I can not access the image since it's restricted on LDS/Familysearch
