TNA podcast: immigration to the UK

This talk by Mark Pearsall from 18 August 2009 looks at immigration into Britain from the 16th to the 20th century, as late as 1986, and the relatively few sources held by TNA that can be used to trace immigrants entering, and living, in the country. Records discussed can provide vital clues to the overseas origins of denizens or naturalised British citizens, as well as providing insight into their first years in their adopted country.
