Wal - Emigration

LDS Emigration to the USA. "The Mormon Immigration Index is a database of approximately 93,000 immigrants who traveled from various international ports to the United States between the years 1840 and 1890. Information in this database includes the age, country of origin, ports of departure and arrival, the company leader assigned to each voyage, and general voyage information. This index also contains transcriptions of autobiographies, journals, diaries, and letters of approximately 1,000 passengers. These immigrant accounts are linked to over 500 known LDS companies and provide a composite account of those who crossed the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to gather in Zion. Other people who took part of these voyages, but who were not members of the LDS Church are also listed in this index." Please include as much information as possible: Name, birth year, country of birth, year of emigration, etc. Withdrawn

' The Settler Handbook' , I have a copy of this book by M.D.Nash, listing all those who emigrated to South Africa under the 1820 Settlers scheme. Over 1,000 families from across the country sailed on 17 ships on government assisted passages. There are certainly some from Wales e.g a group from Haverfordwest in 1820. If you have 'lost' someone in 1820 e-mail me privately and I will search the index for you. I also have a copy of ' Aided Immigration from Britain 'to South Africa 1857-1867  by Esme Bull.
