LOOKING FOR AN ANCESTOR

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 AN ANCESTOR

Postby lmalcewi » 06 Sep 2011, 05:11

My Great Uncle Foco Papaleo traveled from Genova, Italy to Argentina on the ship Valdivia. I do not know the year of travel; however, it must have been in the early 1900's. He is listed as being a bricklayer from Cotronei, Italy. I am unable to access any other information regarding him and would appreciate any information that might help lead me to more information. Thank you!

Hi there,

You can take advantage of the internet for your concerns. There are ancestry services online where you can register. Try them.

Thank you. I have already done that and am unable to find the ship's manifest for this voyage.

Have you checked the site of CEMLA?
http://www.cemla.com/busqueda.php#

this is the record I found:

PAPALEO, FOCO 40 C ALBAÑIL CATOLICA ITALIANA
ship VALDIVIA GENOVA 03/03/1927 - BUENOS AIRES COTRONEI

Looks like he arrived on 1927...

Thank you, Laura! I did see this website but didn't have a date to enter and didn't realize I could search without it! This is awesome--I appreciate it!
