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.

The only ship that comes near is the HELIUS which was originally DRESDEN !! and renamed HELIUS in May 12,1903 and made 19 runs back and forth from BREMEN-NY-BALTIMORE and then was sold to Turkey and sunk in world 1. But this name is a FAR CRY from EVELIJA and sailed from germany not Italy to America soit is not anywhere near the name mentioned. Peter

Helius not is Hevelius..example:

"From www.ellisislandrecords.org:

Nicholas arrived at Ellis Island July 24, 1900. He was 43 years old. Maria is 29 years old. Ethnicity of both is listed as Russian. They came on the [i]ship Hevelius from Rio de Janeiro
, Brazil. Also arrived son Nicholas (9), son Benjamin (7), son Edward (3), daughter Berta (2), daughter Selma (7m). Ethnicity of children is listed as[/i] " etc... http://www.geocities.com/cujamison/genhtm/genzneim.htm

"SS Hevelius, (Belg.,) Capt. Stapledon, from Rio Janeiro, sld. from St. Lucia for New York yesterday." http://www.theshipslist.com/ships/Arrivals/ellisisland1897.html


Hevelius 1874 1889 transferred to Belgian subsidiary, 1903 scrapped.

I have only introduced the possibility of a similar name, not it is the case of to attack directly... however many persons who initially had gone in South America, immediately after I moved myself to the north. Obviously it is not this the case of Barilla statti bene, ciao, suanj
