I am almost prepared to visit the Newberry Library again soon. I have my immigration file ready so my son can look up Italians to American and burial file ready so we can cemetery hop on the way home.
As I did a little more Googling online I came across a website called LookUpThe.name. This website has free lists of Irish and Italian immigrant lists. The Irish cover the years 1846-1851 and the Italians 1855-1900. The Italian database looks like similar data as can be found in the Italians to America series of books. This will save me time at the Newberry Library searching those books if I can do most of the research online. If you have Irish or Italian ancestors, this free website is worth checking out.
