To quote Debbie Beavis about British Passenger lists
<<Passenger lists are not available for ships travelling
:: between ports in Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England
:: ferry boats, including Cross-Channel, North Sea and Irish Sea ferries
:: ships travelling between England and all European ports or any ports
which lie on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, including all islands in
the Mediterranean, such as Malta, UNLESS the ship's voyage started or ended
outside that area. >>
I am of the opinion that they would most likely have gone from Turin by
rail . . to Havre? Antwerp? then ferried across to Dover or London (for
example) on a feeder ship, then rail to Liverpool to embark on a
transatlantic ship. I am unaware of regular scheduled feeder lines from
say . . Genoa, to Britain, although they may have existed.
With British outbound lists, for transmigrants, the name of the ship
bringing them to Britain for onward passage is sometimes given, but was not
required. From 1906 however, the name of the steamship line was a
requirement. The LABRADOR and VANCOUVER outbound lists for 1898-1899
would not likely give you that information. British lists are unfilmed and
