TNA podcast on emigration

The latest podcast from the National Archives at Kew is entitled There and back again: going away doesn’t mean staying away, a talk at just over 45 minutes from Audrey Collins - here's the description:

It is easy to think of emigration as a one-way process, but not everyone who went to live in another country stayed there permanently. As more and more records are indexed online, you may find family members in unexpected places, and as a result discover that your ‘stay at home’ ancestors were more well-travelled than you thought.

The podcast can be heard at http://media.nationalarchives.gov.uk/index.php/there-and-back-again-going-away-doesnt-mean-staying-away/ or downloaded for free from iTunes.


My wife Claire is planning to swim from the Scottish island of Cumbrae to the town of Largs on September 14th to raise money for local charity Gillian's Saltire Appeal, providing respite for families affected by cancer (Claire's mum and sister in Ireland have previously come through cancer, whilst my mum, based in England, currently has bladder cancer). Her Just Giving sponsorship page, with further details, is at http://www.justgiving.com/Claire-Paton1. If you can help to sponsor her, even by a wee amount, we'd be very grateful - many thanks!
