Holy crap the dual citizenship dance is slower than a rush request from the Invicta Service Center.

BUT, I did learn that Santo, my GGF, arrived on a different vessel into a different port than we had previously understood. Turns out, he arrived on the Sicilian Prince departing from Naples and 16 days later (!) arrived in the Port of New York on 3/26/1906.

They had princes in Sicily? I thought all they had were .90 caliber pezzonnvantes.

No, in northern Italy they say there is no such thing as a Sicilian Prince…. But there was an 11 knot steamship that had run aground near Long Island in 1904. Apparently the 600 immigrant passengers all cheered thinking they had arrived. There was less cheering when the SS Sicilian Prince was still stuck and they had not deboarded a full day later.

Great job allowing yourself options.

Dad was born in Stratford. In need to work on my equivalent. One day I may give my firearms to Cod and move to the Thames Valley and watch Benny Hill all day.

Benny Hill was a goddamn Communist. True fact. He was widely believed to be the Third (and possibly, the Fourth) Man. Alas, the hangman was cheated (or his probable being played back against the Sovs) because Harold Macmillan thought him very funny indeed--the only times Macmillan was seen laughing was watching Benny Hill on BBC Two and seeing Louis Mountbatten's colostomy bag fail and empty on the floor of the House of Lords.
