Are you someone with a North American connection? This talk will describe the general pattern of emigration from the British Isles to the US and Canada, but the emphasis will be on resources for 19th and 20th century immigration. Many passenger lists have now been indexed, and tips will be given to how to maximise your chance of success. If you are unable to trace the journey, a range of other resources may help you to locate your person. With perseverance and some luck, the new life of your emigrant may emerge.
