"The stories of emigration which surfaced during almost ten years of research into my own family’s history have long been of particular interest to me. Uncovering information about the journeys which these intrepid, hopeful Ulster men and women undertook and the lives which they constructed upon arrival in their adopted lands has, in many ways, felt more satisfying than tracing their kin who remained rooted in Northern Ireland."

Insights into Ulster Family Emigration analyses some typical examples of Ulster emigrants’ stories from the author's own family’s past and attempts to anchor them to a bigger picture using mainly information contained in newspaper archives.
