Migration to New Worlds - Trial from Adam Matthew

The Trent community has trial access to MIGRATION TO NEW WORLDS, a database from Adam Matthew, covering the emigration of peoples from Great Britain, Ireland, mainland Europe and Asia to the New World and Australasia over the last two centuries..

The database includes a vast array of primary source materials including personal stories, letters, journals, diaries, scrapbooks, and video and oral histories, as well as government papers and substantial information on ships and shipping lines. 

Unique collections supporting research and teaching include the "Homestead Experiences in Canada," drawing on documents from the Glenbow Museum, Library and Archives Canada and the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21; the "New South Wales Convict Database" a list of convicts and former convicts sent to New South Wales between 1780 and 1819; and Chinese and Japanese immigration to the United States.

MIGRATION TO NEW WORLDS is available until Wednesday, April 18, 2018.  Please note that during the trial period, the PDF download option is not available.
