Divergent Paths: Family Histories of Irish Emigrants to Britain 1820-1920

By John Herson. Manchester University Press 2015. Hbk 310 pages. ISBN 9780719090639. £35.00 + £3.00 p&p.

This book is unique in adopting a family history approach to Irish immigrants in nineteenth century Britain. It shows that the family was central to the migrants’ lives and identities. The techniques of family and digital history are used for the first time to reveal the paths followed by a representative body of Irish immigrant families, using the town of Stafford in the West Midlands as a case study.
