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 [where available on the original list-DEZ]. Each volume will also contain an introduction on the history of Italian immigration with a full name index, which will greatly simplify the researcher's job.
Over 900,000 Italians migrated to the United States between 1880 and 1899. Over 300,000 came during the 1880's, with a doubling of the rate in the following decade.
Although Italians departed almost entirely from ports in their home country, this study includes Italian departures from all foreign ports.
The vast majority of Italians immigrated to New York City, so that the first eight (est.) volumes of the series will deal with arrivals in New York. Later volumes will cover other U.S. ports.
