The new thread on Irish Protestants in Ontario is interesting and
illuminating on the large migration from all parts of Ireland, not just Ulster.
Bruce S. Elliott, Irish Migrants in the Canadas (Montreal: McGill University
Press, 1988), 2nd edition, 2004, $32.95 US and Canada, tells this story,
primarily through case studies of Protestant emigrants from North Tipperary to
Ontario. This is an outstanding book, that I considered groundbreaking when I
reviewed it in 1988 (and my review is still quoted in the publisher's blurb).
The author is a trained genealogist who drew on genealogical records of many
Donald Harmen Akenson, The Irish in Ontario, also from McGill, is another
good book on the topic. Akenson has researched and written widely on both Ulster
and rural Ontario.
