immigration

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.

What can you tell us about their ages / dates of birth?

I found a Tommaso Felice, aged 41, who arrived 10 June 1907 from last residence Cleto (province of Cosenza, region of Calabria, Southern Italy). Could this be him?

Don't get to hung up on the "de" part (it would be a prefix, by the way: "de Felice") just now.
