 Professor Stia’s immigration list for 1888 is interesting in two respects. First, the Professor marks this year as the end of the first phase of immigration from San Fele which he describes as a  “tidal wave” of migration. Second, it is a list of names of individuals and families migrating at least first to neighboring towns rather than to the U.S. It is not possible to determine precisely when these people immigrated to the U.S. but it is known that “groups would leave from San Fele and or other towns. I think the lis reflects San Felese that became part of groups leaving with others from surrounding Lucanian villages and towns. I am supplying the list in two parts with the first part marking the two largest groups who left from Melfi the county seat and Atella which would have been on the route to Naples.
