This ebook download includes Italians to America, Volume 2 Jan. 1885-June 1887 from the series Immigrants to America series only.
Each volume in the Immigration to America series presents information from the original ship manifest schedules, or passenger lists, filed by all vessels entering U.S. ports in accordance with a Congressional Act of 1819. The passenger lists make it possible to trace the movement of immigrants to the U.S. from their countries of origin. Volumes are arranged in chronological order by each ship's date of arrival. Every passenger list includes first and last name of each passenger, their age, sex, occupation, nationality, residence, and destination. Analysis of this information enables the researcher to identify not only immigrants, but also aliens returning to the U.S., citizens who are returning to their native country, and those traveling through the U.S. en route to other destinations. Each volume also features a complete name index, making it easy to find a particular individual or family name.
