emigration, inmigration, naturalization

Postby mimifo » 21 Jan 2008, 04:05

:? My greatgrand father left Italy probable from Genova in 1760
were can I find ship records?

He was born in Finale Ligure 1732 approx. his greatgrandfather was born in Finalborgo, Finale Ligure. I think they were all ligurians or savonese for four generations. I'm looking for my ancestors and my roots .

Is this request at all related to seeking Italian citizenship jure sanguinis? If so, bad news is in the air...

Otherwise, this Ancestry.com site, http://www.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=7486, may be helpful: "About Passenger and Immigration Lists Index, 1500s-1900s

It contains listings of approximately 4,588,000 individuals and references thousands of different records compiled from everything from original passenger lists to personal diaries.

A complementary website is www.findmypast.com. the dates range from 1538 to the present time. iIt is a paying site but does furnish initial information like ancestry.com free and you can pay per search. The website is English. =Peter=

FWIW, even 1860 is prior to the unification of Italy. As aluded to in my previous post, persons who were not present at the time of unification were not granted citizenship in the new country we know as Italia today.

Not present at the time of unification = no citizenship = nothing to pass on jure sangiunis.

Such is my understanding.
