There were several, Boston and New Orleans being amongst the most important. Many Italians also landed in Canada and then crossed the border by train.

Best bet would be a free one-week trial at Ancestry . com.

If you would like, give us some details (name, approximate birth year and place, etc) and someone here will no doubt lend a hand.
