CORNISH GLOBAL MIGRATION PROGRAMME
THE DIASPORA OF THE PEOPLE OF CORNWALL

THE MIGRANT DATABASE

The full migration database is relational, with ten linked tables. There are currently over 270,000 individuals recorded, with over 500 possible fields for each of those individuals and there are also many thousands of PDF files embedded. For the time being we have decided to make available index lists extracted from that master record.

We suggest you download and save these file to your computer and you can then search at your leisure. You can always stay ‘on-line’ and use your browser ‘Find on this page’ facility.

AUSTRALIA BOUND. Our records for Cornwall need quite a lot of work. The CGMP presently holds details of some 7000 born Cornwall who migrated to Australia, this includes those who may have returned home or moved on to another country (a surprising number moved from country to country). This PDF does not include descendants who also appear in our records and it is a simple index giving only the First and last names, district born in Cornwall and year of birth as well as our key reference.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          (pages 223) 26 May 2020
