Hello Genevieve

Thanks for the kind words. I find no reference to FOCA nor FOSA being Jewish or Hebrew. Most FOCA who came through Ellis Island were arr from Italy and Sicily some from Romania and a few from Galicia which is now Poland and Ukraine. As far as their declaration of Race most declared Italian and the others Polish and Romanian. Mostly the same is found with FOSA. A search at Google com shows no Jewish connection.

Perhaps you could inquire at
