travel documents?

Postby elmosgirl » 26 Jun 2011, 23:40

Question: what did our Italian ancestors have to have in order to board a steamship/liner in Italy (1880-1900) for the USA?

Did they need certain papers? Which ones? Photos? Proof of who they said they were?

I know they had to have a minimum amount of money (wasn't it $12.00?).

What was it that gave them access to travel and leaving Italy behind??

Thanks for your answer!
