So.. we're looking for an immigration record of

Paolo CHIULLI c1879 - possible port of entry - Boston

Parents: Crescenzo CHIULLI and Maria G CIARROCCO(?)

Spouse: Maria Guiseppa Petruccia Mazzocco (second marriage for Maria Parents: Francesco Petruccia & Lucia Moresca)

Married: 10 Feb 1913 - Boston, Massachusetts

Is the above info correct?

Do you have all the available census records for Paolo?

If not, can you list Paolo's children?

Census records really help with a Passenger List search.

Look forward to your reply.

Yes. I can't find him or Maria Petrucci Mazzocca on any travel records. When Paolo Chiulli got here, he changed his spelling to Paul Chully. He does not show up in 1910 or 1920 census. Very strange!

Thank you! It seems the census taker got some of the spellings wrong, but otherwise it does seem to match up. Mazouka, was Mazzocca. Very interesting stuff! Thank you for your help.
