BOOK - Whence They Came: Irish Origins From pre 1900 New Brunswick Death Notices
By: Peter Murphy
Published by Global Heritage Press, MIlton, 2010
More than 250, 000 Irish immigrants passed through the ports of New Brunswick during the half century from the close of the Napoleonic Wars to Canadian Confederation in 1867. Today their descendants-numbering in the millions-are to be found in places as far flung as Alaska and Australia, along the banks of the St. John and the Miramichi, the Charles and the Potomoc, in the shadow of Toronto's CN Tower, and in every corner of the globe. Interest in their history grows-it seems-in proportion to the number of their descendants. Where, these descendants ask, did we come from? Simply put, this work is designed to offer the most reliable response to this most asked question! Gathered together here are nearly three thousand death notices, transcribed verbatim from pre-1900 New Brunswick newspapers, each of which identifies a specific place of origin in Ireland. Available in both hardcover and CD.
