Cornwall Family History Society

    

During the second half of the nineteenth century, almost twenty five per cent of the population of Cornwall emigrated. As well as those who crossed the Tamar to England, the Cornish left in large numbers for the United States of America, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Central and South America and later to South Africa. As a result, there are some 6 million people world-wide who proudly claim Cornish ancestry.
