Italians to America

Lists of Passengers Arriving at U.S. Ports
Edited by Ira A. Glazier and P. William Filby

This is a reference series that contains passenger list information in chronological order on the first major wave of Italian migration to the US during the last two decades of the 19th century. The volumes provide every 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 to the US ports. They also include an introduction on the history of Italian migration and full name indexes.

The passenger lists reproduced in these volumes are arranged in chronological order by date of arrival, and Italian passengers on these lists who disembarked at New York are published in their entirety. The lists make possible a detailed reconstruction of the movement of population from Italy by including information on the age, sex, occupation, residence, and putative destination of each passenger.

These books are still in print and can be ordered from, and future volumes will include Italians who arrived at ports other than New York.
