Meaning of codes scribbled on 1895 Italian Passport?

Postby narzio » 12 Jul 2013, 21:15

This is my 2nd great grandmother's passport to Buenos Aires. I want to know when she arrived. I see a stamp for the ship Duca Di Galliera, and also that the passport was issued April 5th, 1895 and was valid for one year. Now I want to know the date of her arrival, and I suppose she must have arrived in Bs As between April 1895 - April 1896. My research shows that the DDG arrived in Bs As on July 1, 1895, September 1, 1895, and March 11, 1896, but her name does not appear on CEMLA and other passenger list databases for those datas, and I suspect that the DDG actually arrived about every 1-2 months.

Three questions:

1. Does anyone have a complete 1895 -- 96 calendar for all Duca Di Galliera arrivals on the La Plata line (including Montevideo and other stops)?

2. Does anyone know the meaning of the handwritten codes on the passport? They are actually written in red colored pencil. I'm trying to get a good photo of the original from a distant relative in Bs As.

3. Any other tips for finding their arrival dates?

Hi!
If you mean the words handwritten in two different shades of blue ink, they simply repeat, in a more readable handwriting and with some unimportant mistakes, what was originally written by the official clerk. Those in a darker shade give the Spanish translation. It looks as if two different individuals made thes annotations

Actually the blue ink is a translation from Italian to Spanish. The important codes were originally in red:

122/123

2280

B 6

1 1/2

Thanks Marty, but the age and dates dont match. Eugenia Grossi was 45 years old when she arrived in 1895 or 96.
