Thanks for these great articles. I've read a couple of interest, but will surely explore this site further at a later date.

Note that the link to the last article, "From Yorkshire to Nova Scotia: reflections on a Migration", leads to a different article. Here's the correct link:

Hi John.

Glad you found these articles useful. I was the programme secretary for the Exodus conference in 2013 so I'll pass on your compliments to the conference webmaster.
