My great great great grandfather (Giovanni Bertucci, born 9/15/1834) was the first Bertucci in my family to come to New Orleans from Ustica. His son (Pietro Bertucci, born 11/22/1865) was born in New Orleans, so Giovanni must have arrived prior to that time. It is not known to my family how Giovanni came to New Orleans. Does anyone know if he was one of the passengers on the bark Elisabetta that departed Ustica on 2/14/1861 or if there were other boats that made that same journey?
