Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

We have two threads going on the same topic, makes it hard to keep track of what research has been performed, confirmed and what needs to be determined.
For the sake of continuity, limit the postings to the thread in Italian Genealogy, as Biff has provided many records already.
Thanks,
