West Ireland Emigration to Canada


This site is dedicated to the exchange of information about the families described in Dr. Bruce Elliott's book, "Irish Migrants in the Canadas".  See book details at http://www.mqup.mcgill.ca/book.php?bookid=743 . This is an unoffical site to support genealogical research and was not created by Dr. Bruce Elliot, nor his publisher, McGill-Queens University Press.  Let me know if you want this site changed in any way. Currently, everyone is allowed to contribute material to this site. Hopefully, no one will contribute anything that is inappropriate. If that happens, a name and password will be required for contributors.

Include your e-mail address when you add information so that others can contact you. Add yourself to the Researchers list.

Anyone wishing to help manage this site should contact me. Site management is easy and consists of creating new Discussion Boards or Lists. Send comments to Terry Young at tyoung@teamapproach.ca or put them on the Discussion Board.
