++May 17, 2018 LCGS Meeting “Emigration Out of the British Isles: Pushing and Pulling” with Carol Darrow - 6:30 AM - 8:30 PM at PRPLD Council Tree Library
Emigration is the process of leaving one’s country of residence to live elsewhere. There is a push/pull effect – reasons why someone would feel the need to leave their homeland and reasons that would attract emigrants to a particular new home. Immigration to America started as early as 1608 with 100-200 people a year, and by 1900 reached a flood of one million immigrants per year from countries around the world. Ship travel by sail or steam could be harrowing and new arrivals in America found settling into a new country could be a daunting task.
