Maniseras from Pertosa

Posted by Bob Spence on 02/10/03 at 7:09 AM

Two brothers, Andreas and Vittorio Manisera, left Pertosa for New York. Andreas was born about 1862. He traveled to New York with his wife Carmelo, daughter,Maria, and son Tommass. They sailed on the ship, Gellert, which departed from Naples, and arrived in New York on December 16, 1893.

Vittorio was born in approxiamately 1867, and may have left for New York earlier than Andreas. Vittorio marred Carmela Ciccarolo, but it is unclear as to whether this was in Pertosa or New York.

I will be most grateful to anyone who has information on the ancestry of Andreas and Vittorio.
