Ships from 1958

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.

Ships from 1958

Postby Letizia » 22 Jul 2010, 02:12

My family and I arrived from Italy in 1958 in NYC. Does anyone know the name of the ship used at that time?

Unfortunately, there were many ships which routinely carried passengers across the Atlantic and into New York and other eastern ports, although by 1958, many immigrants were arriving by airplane.

Do you have any further information other than the year 1958?

The only information I can add is the exact date: We arrived in NYC on July 4, 1958 because of the holiday, disembarked on July 5.

A ship named the "M/V London" put in at the port of Oswego, NY on July 6, 1958.

I will see what else I can find.

Can you share a name or two? Did you sail from Italy?

Yes, we sailed from Italy. My sister remembers leaving from Naples. Our last name is Zummo.
