Ships Arriving from San Pietro Avellana

This Page last updated on .

Its interesting to look at some of the pioneer families from San Pietro Avellana 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 of SPA.

For New York immigration records outside of the Ellis Island era (1892-1924), my source was 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 Ellis Island":

        Immigrant Arrivals in the PORT of NEW YORK

    Before August 1855                                           Wharfs of Manhattan

    August         1, 1855   to   April         18,1890    Castle Garden
    April          19, 1890   to   December 31,1891    Barge Office
    January        1, 1892   to   June          13,1897    Ellis Island
    June           14, 1897   to   December 16,1900    Barge Office
    December  17, 1900   to                         1924    Ellis Island

The 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 years. 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.

On this page, I will list the ships that I can find. Most of this data is on I will then try to make a separate page for each ship detailing the names of the people who arrived.
