Comments and General Information

Information to consider before reading these passenger lists.

A Ship passenger list may contain the full list but most are partial and contain Italian names. You must remember that many of these list are very hard to read and that most times there a a great many spelling errors. The Persons transcribing them have tried their best to make them readable, but sometimes that's just not possible. Please remember these people are not professionals and only fellow researchers like you and I.

Please do not rely on this information as being fact, please view the original record if possible. As I said we have done the best we can. But you must consider the endless possibilities of similar names, along with the spelling incompatibility. These lists are meant to be a tool to send you in a direction of possibly finding the correct person. You need to verify information to be sure.

Most of the lists are not alphabetized.The reason for this is that many times people traveled together. By using the list in this way you may be able to find other family members or friends along with the person you are searching.

Research Ideas

Some ships are split over several pages due to the lenght of the passenger list.

Ports of departure

Most Italians left from ports in Italy. Some did not,there are many reasons for this and far to many to list. But a few of them may be the cost of passage the proximity of the port and passport restrictions. La Harve, France seems to be one of the biggest choices for the Italian Immigrant outside of Italian Ports.

Name changes are a problem for many. There are many different reasons for this. So the best way may be to search several variations on any given name. Please remember that in Italy a woman uses her family or maiden name, she did not take the name of her spouse at marriage. You may even try searching by Comune (town) If you know where the person was from. Not all ships list this information but some do.

United States Copy of Naturalization Records

To obtain a copy of naturalization records from the

Immigration and Naturalization Service
425 I Street N.W.
Washington, DC 20536

(ask for form #G-641). After September 1906, both the Declaration of Intention and the Petition for Naturalization ask for the date and place of birth, the date and port of emigration, the name of the vessel, and the date and port of arrival. (Be forewarned that the dates of emigration and arrival were usually given from memory many years after the event, and are therefore often incorrect; however, the name of the vessel is almost always correct, although the name may be remembered in a slightly mangled form.) The instructions for obtaining the documents through the INS are on the PIE website. Go to the FAQs, then to Section B, then to the question that asks how do I obtain my ancestor's naturalization records.
