Thank you so much!! I must admit that I don't think I have enough imagination. I have a friend in Altavilla Silentina that wrote a book called La Merica Altavillese. It is about people from that town that came to the USA. In the book is a published list of immigrants but my grandfather and great grandparents were not in it. I had just about given up when I ordered the naturalization papers and voila! there was the ship's name. You know the rest. It is curious though that his parents were still alive in 1927 when he petitioned. I wonder if he did not expect the question and made something up or maybe they forgot? Forgetting seems unlikely. I'll never know. Thanks again, I learn something new every day in my research. I'm hooked!!
