looking info of immigration ships to Argentina 1950-1951

Postby fermacca » 16 Nov 2005, 02:01

Hi everybody, Im trying to find information about the ships where my grandma and grandpa came to Argentina in 1950 and 10/3/1951. They were called "Paulo Toscanelli" and "Cabo de Hornos".

I want to give to my grandma for christmas a "book" with photos, pictures and all the info I can get about them.

In Argentina there is the "CEMLA - (Centro de Estudios Migratorios Latinoamericanos)", but they have data until 1920 :(

Is there a site where I can get the ship lists, the manifests?. All the info you can give me will be apreciated.

Her name is: Gemma Alersi
His name was: Ezio Raggi

Thanks
Fernando
