Departure records in italy?

Postby ChrisMosca » 10 Oct 2008, 23:16

I know we have wonderful websites like ellis island and the castle garden, the data banks for brasil and argentina. Is there a website or place(s) were one can access or ask for records of the passengers leaving italy? or does one have to write to the major ports at the time?
Looking for the surnames Mosca( Marches ), Pizzoglio (Piedmonte), Chiacchiera, Lobasso(Bari), Gallo(Malvito), Azzolina (Messina).

Chris only records of incoming visitors and immigrants were/are maintained in just about every country where such records are maintained. Even inthe USA, ICE does not check for departures just incoming passengers as a routine matter.

Italy did not maintain any departure records but passenger lists of outgoing ships were/are in effect, Italy's departure records. =Peter=
