Italians to South America Data Bank

Postby mfjp » 16 Apr 2005, 04:48

The Data Banks ...on Italian emigrants to the United States, Argentina and Brazil...

Don't log in yet... as it might hang up your computer.... :?:

http://213.212.128.168/radici/ie/defaultie.htm

During the last two years, I have tried to register to this site... about 4 times... with no luck...

I have yet to view one manifest or any other kind of information. :roll:

Recently I read a couple of comments about not being able to log in... but yet... I have seen people post links to this site telling people to look for their ancestors here...

My questions are...

1. Has anyone been able to view a manifest from this site?

2. What Italian ports or other ports do they depart from... what info do these manifests contain... how do they compare to Ellis manifests?

3. Why can't I even log in after I register?

4. I am somewhat computer literate... I just don't understand why I can't view one thing... would using a Macintosh computer be a problem...?

I ignore 99% of the South American posts at this forum, only because I haven't any data or proof of their ancestors. I feel sorry for our South American paesanos... because of the research challenges they face. :cry:

I appreciate the work of the forum members who try to help our South American friends, and sometimes wish I could help too.

I would really appreciate any comments or advice!! :P

With thanks,
Maria

Hi Maria,

For the website you mention above, I use the following link:

http://www.italians-world.org/Italy/BancaDatiGb.htm

Click on a language, then click on the "Find Your Roots", then make a name and password and you should get in with no problem.

To answer some of your questions, this link does list people who went to South America as well as to the USA. However, there isn't a manifest to view like you do on Ellis Island.

Also, to those of South America, if you go the link below for the Family History Catalog, you do a place search and type in the Country you are from and you will get a list of the the microfilm the Family History Center has.

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... umns=*,0,0

I hope this is of some help to you all.
Trish

Hi Trish,

Hope all is well... really appreciate how fast you answered my questions. I am sure that this info will also help the others who wondered the same thing.

Much of the American research can be done from the internet... but when you've done all your American research... The Family History Center is the way to go... or even a big city library (but phone first)...

Now that I have replied to you... I will check out the link you linked... but wanted to thank you first...

All the very best to you!!

Hi Maria,

You didn't have to thank me, we are all on here to help each other out!:)

This link might also help with reseraching genealogy in South America. I also have to find a few other links that I have misfiled in my "favorites".

Hi Maria,

Just wanted to let you know that I am able to access this data base using the first link you posted. I had trouble in the past though. You do need to create a log in. Search results will give you a summary of the information. It does not link directly to a manifest as Ellis Island.

Thanks to all who posted with replies!

I finally got a result within the Brazil bank within seconds (no matches... oh well) first time ever but got really super fast results using the USA banks searching for my paesanos... this is so cool for me!!:P :P :P

I used a different internet browser all together!!

Maybe I should use SAFARI more often....

I only use Internet Explorer just because I've used it for years- all my bookmarks are there etc... - but the rest of my family refuses to use it... they prefer SAFARI instead...

So wldspirit... if you are reading... try using a different internet browser...

Thanks for all the links, as this not only helps me - but those out there too... :P :P :P

OK - but one more question... does the Family History Library carry film of these manifests?? say.... from Italy to Brazil?? I could look for it myself... but if you have seen these manifests... what are they like??
