Husband's grandmother born 1884 in Montevideo, Uruguay

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.

Husband's grandmother born 1884 in Montevideo, Uruguay

The story as told by my mother-in-law, now deceased, is that her mother was born in 1884 in Montevideo, Uruguay on a ship that left Italy for America. Is that a possible route to America back then? Thanks

Hi. Italians emigrating to the United States would not have gone to Uruguay but many Italians did emigrate to Uruguay instead of the USA. Often, when Italians talked about going to America, South America was included.
