    Hello, my great grandfather on the 1920 census record shows his name to be John Enfusse, came to the United States in 1901 and his WWI draft record shows his birthdate as March 25, 1882 in Rome Italy. On his marriage record to my great grandmother, he put that his dad’s name as Domenic Enfusse and his mother’s name as Maria (Mary) Myratin. I am not finding any of them within Italy. I am thinking John’s real last name in Italy was Infussi but not for sure. How can I truely find out what his Italian name was and the ship record where he came to the US?
