Title: Immigration to America
Journaling:
My grandmother, Nana Emma, left Italy at the age of 15 in 1916. She was one year too young so documents were arranged for so that she may immigrate to the U.S. Her parents wanted to move the entire family to avoid wartimes in their country.
Nana traveled 3rd class with her sister, leaving her parents and nine (9) other siblings behind. Once in America, Nana worked long hours as a seamstress in a factory that manufactured soldiers’ uniforms. She and her sister enabled the rest of her family to immigrate to the U.S. One of Nana’s proudest moments was the day she became a U.S. citizen.
Nana married Anthony Barbagallo at the age of 26 and had 3 children (she lost a set of twins). She raised her family during the depression years and struggled financially throughout her life, even though her husband owned a successful barber shop. She became a loving grandmother to six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren before she passed on just four months before she would have turned 100 years old. Her family was her love and her life. They meant everything to her.
