Birds of Passage
Rosemary Elizabeth DePasquale Boykin


An annotated listing of Italian immigrants who departed Palermo, Sicily, and arrived at the Port of New Orleans, Louisiana, 1859-1901. A transcription of 23,975 immigrants' names, families, and many other details. 2,000+ pages. Rosemary spent eight years transcribing these files from the original microfilm and microfiche files from the National Archives. The original files are written in often illegible Spencerian handwriting with abbreviations peculiar only to the enumerator. This was a labor of love for my Mother. I am honored to be able to make this available once again. Searchable PDF/flash drive. Contact Anne Boykin directly to purchase. $55
