Looking for shipping records

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.

Looking for shipping records

Postby kindelan » 23 Sep 2009, 23:38

My grandfather Pietro Movigliatti apparently departed from Genoa, Italy in 1914 and disembarked at Sydney Australia.

I have researched the National Archives in Australia but cannot find any shipping records/passenger lists with him on it.

Do you know if Genoa has any such records?

No, Paula, unfortunately Genoa has not such kind of registers...
I found on the web this site regarding the North German Lloyd ( I saw on the naturalization papers of Pietro, that he stated he travelled with this ship line)
