Alsatia arriving at the Port of New York, 3 Jun 1891

This Page last updated on .

The manifest for the 3 Jun 1891 arrival shows the Alsatia sailed from Fiume, Naples and Palermo, Italy. This manifest is very confusing as names are lined out and corrections are written in. Although the names are corrected, the person's sex and age are not corrected.

I tried to find each of these people in the SPA birth records. I'm still looking.

If you have an account, here is a link to the manifest.
