Item description for Emigrants and Expats: A Guide to Sources on UK Emigration and Residents Overseas (Public Record Office Readers Guide) (Readers Guides) by Roger Kershaw...
Since the seventeenth century it is estimated that over seventeen million people have emigrated from the British Isles. Sometimes the decision was voluntary-to seek political or religious freedom, the need to escape war or poverty, or simply a desire for a better life. Emigration was enforced in the transportation of convicts. This guide describes the major waves of emigration and government approved schemes, as well as explaining clearly reasons for such movements and how patterns have changed over time. Contents: * Passenger Lists and Passports * Emigration to the Colonies and Dominions * Child Emigration Schemes * Prisoners Transported Overseas * Life-Cycle Records of the British Overseas * The British Overseas in Wartime * Bibliography; Index
