|Subject: Ellis Island &Napoli|
On a recent trip to New York City, I had the opportunity to visit Ellis
Island. It was a fascinating place. I found out I could research my
grandparents using the site
http://www.ellisislandrecords.org I did so and actually found them.
It has inspired us to take a trip to the area in Campania from which they came. Listed on the manifest was the town of Boscotrecase. I think we may be able to sneak a little time over the Christmas holidays to go to Italy once again. Any wisdom or suggestions for doing additional research, things to see and do, as well as places to stay or eat will be most valued.
I will definitely be searching the archives. My great grandfather was a tour guide at Pompeii so that is an absolute must on our list. I am a bit concerned about weather issues if we stray from the coast.
