Craco Immigrants Arriving in US Ports

Other Than New York City

 

 

 

Boston Immigration Station c. 1904

 

 

 Although New York Harbor was the primary port of entry for immigrants from Craco, there were several other locations

 around the country that could have served them, including Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia, or New Orleans. Of these

 ports, a search of manifests (using Ancestry.com) identified 69 additional Crachesi entering through Boston.  These

 arrivals occurred in a short period, with 2 individuals arriving in December 1901, 64 during 1902, and 3 in March 1903.

 The 1902 arrivals came on 5 different voyages. Three ships owned by the Dominion Line, the SS Cambroman, SS New

 England, and SS Vancouver carried them from Naples to Boston.   

 When they arrived here they were processed at the Boston Immigration Station and then had to make their way to New

 York which was given as their destination. Why these immigrants chose this route isn’t known.  Perhaps the Dominion

 Line, which normally had service from Liverpool England to Quebec City and Montreal Canada, offered a better rate

 since that company entered the Boston to Naples route during this period. 

 This list is by no means exhaustive, since the “Place of Last Residence” wasn’t always required or a misspelling of the

 town name “Craco” did not produce a match.  The following is the list of individuals and images of the ships they arrived

 on.
