Outbound Ships Passenger Lists

Shannon's question involved outbound ships passenger lists from USA.

I'm looking for incoming ships lists for Naples, Italy and Palermo, Italy between 1910 and 1914. Port of departure is New York City.

Do you know if this records exist? Or if there are outbound USA ship records between 1910 and 1914?
ASK OLIVE TREE RESPONSE: Hi Shannon. That's a good question and it's an easy question to answer. Neither USA nor Canada kept any outgoing ships passenger lists.

That means you need to check the incoming port of arrival to see what ships passenger lists (if any) survive and are accessible for your time frame.

So you will need to check for incoming lists in Italy 1910-1914. I'd try their state archives. This site has a list of them.

You might find reference to passengers in local newspapers. There is project to list outbound Ships Passenger lists from the actual ship papers given to passengers which you may want to check.
