Finding Ferdinando Mazza on a Passenger List

Ferdinando Mazza is an ancestor of one of my friends. We have both been learning about the Italian heritage of Sandusky, Ohio.

You can search for passengers who entered the U.S. at the free Ellis Island Passenger Search database or at Both databases require a free registration.

Ferdinando Mazza departed from Genoa, Italy, on February 25, 1906, aboard the ship Il Piemonte, and he arrived at New York on March 18, 1906.  He was listed as number 18 on the passenger list.

He stated that he was going to Sandusky, Ohio, to join his brother Guglielmo.

Several individuals of Italian descent were also traveling to Sandusky, Ohio on this voyage. Surnames included Berardi, Corelli and Magi.

One can learn so much about their family history by searching through passenger lists! If you have ancestors who came to the U.S. between 1892 and 1924, try searching for them online! Happy hunting!
