|Certificate of Arrival|
|Declaration of Intention|
|Petition For Naturalization|
|Oath of Allegiance|
The Certificate of Arrival told me when, where, and how he arrived on this side of the pond. He arrived in New York under the name of Michele Mangiafico, October 4, 1920 aboard the SS Canada. No wonder I couldn't find him! I was looking for a Paolo Mangiafico!
The Declaration of Intention furnished me with his wedding date and a very handsome picture.
It also confused me a little that his daughter was listed as Bridget cause everyone knew her as Bea(trice). But, according to the Italian naming customs it makes sense that her name would be Brigida because she was the oldest daughter named after Paolo's mother.
They also spelled his name wrong - Paulo Michel Mangiofico.
I was finally able to find the ship's passenger list and discovered a cousin. He was going to Boston to join cousin Rosario Bologna.
