Emigration is the process of leaving one’s country of residence to live elsewhere. There is a push/pull effect – reasons why someone would feel the need to leave their homeland and reasons that would attract emigrants to a particular new home.

Immigration to America started as early as 1608 with 100-200 people a year, and by 1900 reached a flood of one million immigrants per year from countries around the world. Ship travel by sail or steam could be harrowing and new arrivals in America found settling into a new country could be a daunting task.

Carol Darrow, CG, will describe the various forces that pushed people out of their comfort zone of home to sail off to a new uncharted country, and the pulling force that drew people to the American continent.

Biography:

Carol Darrow has been nationally certified genealogist since 2005, past president of the Colorado Genealogical Society and currently volunteers on Tuesdays at DPL and on Thursdays at the National Archives-Denver Branch in Broomfield
