Ships Arriving from Sant'Eufemia a Maiella
This Page last updated on
Its interesting to look at some of the pioneer families from
Sant'Eufemia a Maiella who came to the United States before Ellis
Island opened in
1892. These people were truly the vanguard of a large immigration that
lasted into the 1920's and that included, possibly, 50% of the people
On this page, I will list the ships that I can find. Most of this data
is on ancestry.com. I will then try to make a separate page for each
ship detailing the names of the people who arrived.
For New York immigration records outside
of the Ellis Island era (1892-1924), my source was http://www.ancestry.com and the Castle Garden web site. For New York arrivals, I
found this information on the Ellis Island web site in the document "History of Castle Garden and
Immigrant Arrivals in the PORT of NEW
Wharfs of Manhattan

wooden buildings on ELLIS ISLAND burned to the ground on 13 June 1897.
The old BARGE OFFICE was reopened and used as the processing center for
immigrants through the PORT of NEW YORK for the next 3 ½
Ellis Island reopened on 17th December 1900.
On July 1, 1924 a new law went into effect which stated that immigrants
were to be inspected at US consular offices in the immigrant's home
country before coming to the US
(Mark's note: this removed the need for a US based inspection point ). Ellis Island continued to be used as
an alien detention center until November 1954.
