Subject: [GV] 1878: North Am. versus South America emigration
Date: Sat, 14 Jun 2003 09:27:19 Africa/Johannesburg


Most GRs wanted to emigrate to North America.
Was South America very much a 2nd choice ?

was it easier to get into ?
was it cheaper to reach ?
Did King Pedro offer more land ? cheaper passage ?

(I know that those GRs who were rejected by North America
on medical grounds, moved on to Central and South America).

I am trying to find out why a Volga-GR group was intending to
emigrate to Parana (Brazil), instead of aiming for North America ?

What were the advantages, if any, of Parana ?

what could have been their reasons ?
