He is going to cousin N??? Giovanni, Box 280, Eaglewood, NY? This is one
of those "Missing Manifests" but I followed the simple instructions (in the
faq) on Steve Morse's site for "missing manifests" and easily displayed the
image. Peter had $9.00 The Fabre Line ROMA departed Naples 11th February
1904. The comments in ( ) are mine, from reading the manifest. Here is
Rosa....she seemed to have come alone

Rosa had $10.00 and was going to sister & brother Francesca & Guiseppe 25?
Broadway, Nyack, NY .... so there is another family story blown away :-}
The Anchor Line ITALIA departed Naples 6th July 1905.

Afraid that this is all I can do .. I can't help you get copies of US records.
