Emigrantes Riojanos a América, 1880-1936

I ran into this site today, and thought I would share it with everyone. The site is really well done, and the research seems to be very sound. The researchers scoured archives (municipal, provincial, etc.) throughout the region of La Rioja, and compiled this beautiful database.

The database can be browsed or searched by emigrant and/or by locality. The database includes the following information
  • Emigrants name / nombre de emigrante
  • Names of the emigrant's parents / nombres de los padres del emigrante
  • Birthplace / lugar de nacimiento
  • Year of emigration / Año de salida (no lo tiene para cada emigrante)
  • Destination City / Ciudad de destino
  • Destination Country / País de destino
  • Notes / Observaciones
Basically the database gives you almost everything you need to identify your ancestor and begin researching them in parish registers and other records. You can click on the picture to get the website or you can click here.
