Emil and Mary Tomasi Interview (Part of the Italian American Oral History Project)
- Tomasi, Emil (Interviewee, Person)
Tomasi landed at Ellis Island and speaks about the trip over in a boat which almost sunk. He gives an idea of what life was like for Italians and how they lived back then. Other family members came over with him and they all wanted to go back to Italy. It was hard to go to school, as they spoke no English. Frank also talks about Italian societies and gives several short stories about mills, Italian food and gardening. His wife, Mary Anna Stockero Tomasi, is also present and provides her family history. Recorded at Hermansville, Michigan.
