A Guide for Family Historians
By (author) Roger Kershaw
Migration Records by Roger Kershaw
Book DescriptionOver the past 400 years thousands of people have moved to settle in Britain, and thousands more left its shores for life overseas. This practical and accessible guide shows how to explore migration records - and ancestors featured in them - through the wealth of records at The National Archives and elsewhere. "Migration Records" charts new online releases, including a major immigration package of passenger lists, certificates of arrival and naturalization applications, and discusses how improved catalogue information has opened up passport applications for research. From refugees fleeing persecution to child migrants, naturalization and citizenship papers to transportation records, it is an invaluable guide to the story of migration that changed so many lives.
