Italians to America
The volumes in this series index the family names of the more than four million Italian immigrants who arrived in America between 1840 and 1900. Using the original passenger lists for 1820-1897, prepared by shipping agents and ships' officers, the arrangement is chronological by date of each ship's arrival.Italians to America is the first indexed reference work devoted to Italian immigrants to the United States. This series contains passenger list information in chronological order on the first major wave of Italian migration during the last two decades of the nineteenth century. As with the highly regarded companion series on German immigrants, Italians to America presents the passenger lists in chronological order, including information on each person's age, sex, occupation, village of origin, and destination, plus the name of the ship, the port of embarkation and the date of arrival. Each volume also contains an introduction on the history of Italian migration to the U.S. and a full name index, greatly simplifying the researcher's job.
