Emigration and immigration data sources provide the names of persons leaving (emigration) Argentina or entering (immigration) Argentina. Typically, these records appear in the form of passenger lists, emigration permits, records of passports issued, or lists of prisoners deported. The information on these documents may include name, age, occupation, destination, and sometimes place of origin or birth of the emigrant.
These documents can be very useful in helping you determine where in Argentina your ancestor settled or from which city he or she immigrated. In addition to their value in establishing the place of residence in the country prior to the emigrant’s departure, these records can help you assemble family groups. If you are unable to find information on your ancestor, you may be able to find emigration data on his neighbors. In Argentina and other countries, people who resided in the same area often settled together in the place to which they emigrated.
Immigration in Argentina (1880 to 1914)
Migratory movements from Europe to the Río de la Plata area in the second half of the 19th century and in the first decades of the 20th century responded to a variety of causes, including natural disasters, social upheavals or political exile. But socioeconomic and political factors were undoubtedly the driving forces behind an exodus that continued, albeit with varying intensity, until the Second World War. In this article we will deal with some aspects of this phenomenon, especially the reception facilities for immigrants as part of the official planning of the receiving countries.
The development of reception facilities for immigrants in these countries involved the creation of accommodation, first in the form of asylums and later as hostels or hotels, which operated until the mid-twentieth century. In general, the “immigrant hotels” did not limit their functions strictly to lodging, but were conceived as “complexes” from where they tried to attend to the immigrant’s situation in the different aspects that made up the phenomenon. These complexes could also include employment offices, placement agencies, health care facilities, training and socialization spaces.

European migration is the movement of people from Europe to other continents. It was a particularly intense phenomenon in the colonial period, during the European wars and dictatorships, due to the demographic increases of the population in the region and the economic crises, famines, political repression and other difficulties present in the continent at that time. The reversal of these factors in Western Europe has changed the sign of the migratory balance, being this area nowadays an important recipient of immigrants.
Many emigrated in search of adventure, work and, in general, economic advancement in order to achieve greater expectations for the future. Several of them settled permanently in the new lands, created new nations and transferred the culture and part of the European heritage.
Another great recipient of immigrants has been Brazil, where about five million Europeans arrived between 1860 and 1920,(one million until 1900) about 2-4 million settled permanently. The number of immigrants has been increasing in the last few years. The number of immigrants has been increasing in the last few years.
