This book «[...] gives a voice to the Irish, Scottish, English, and Welsh women and men who negotiated the complex and often dangerous world of emigration between 1815 and 1845. […] Individuals made their decisions within a matrix of kin and community, their experiences shaped by their identities as husbands and wives, parents and children, sibling and cousins. The Atlantic crossing divided families, but it was also the means of reuniting kin and rebuilding old communities. Emigration created its own unique world, a world whose inhabitants remained well aware of the transatlantic community that provided them with a continuing sense of identity, home, and family.» (quatrième de couverture) Quebec is mentioned in this research because Quebec City was the emigrants’ arrival port.
