Notes: I know many of the surnames are misspelled, but I've copied them the best that I could make out the handwriting. Interesting to note that almost all of the passenger's first names were Americanized. There's not much information on these early list - just name, age, sex, occupation, where going, and place occupied on the ship. Unfortunately,relationships between passengers was not given, nor were birth places or former residences. This ship sailed from Genova, was Sardinian and all passengers were listed as severally belonging to Sardinia. Most of the passengers' destination was listed as: United States, the others were -California, one to Lima and one Montevideo. There were 108 passengers with one dying onboard. I didn't photocopy the page with the first 13 surnames so I don't have any further info on them, I had just made note of their surnames.
