Italian Immigration

In the later part of the nineteenth and early part of the twentieth century, many people came to Trumbull County in search of manufacturing and industrial jobs to make a better life for themselves and their families. Unfortunately, many also faced discrimination within and outside the factories, which led to developing their own customs and neighborhoods. In this episode, our guest Dr. Martha Pallante talks about Italian immigrants who lived and worked in the valley. Our guest shares the experience of her family immigrating from Italy to Ohio–what jobs they worked, traditions created, and lives lived. Dr. Pallante is a professor of Early American History, author, and a leading expert on local history at Youngstown State University. She was born and still lives in Niles, OH.
