CORNISH GLOBAL MIGRATION PROGRAMME

THE CORNISH GLOBAL MIGRATION PROGRAMME

Murdoch House, Redruth, Cornwall

"The Spiritual Home of Cornish Migration"

To understand and love the Cornish you should have a feel for the particular and unique history of Cornwall and the great migration of the Cornish people around the world.

Murdoch House in Redruth, Cornwall is the centre for recording and studying the remarkable diaspora of the Cornish People.

The Cornish Global Migration Programme is an initiative of Redruth 2000 a charity registered in the UK.

Our main asset is a huge and complex database of people born in Cornwall or descended from Cornish born ancestors who migrated from Cornwall (and including those that returned).  But we have much more. We are presently reorganising a library of associated literature.  In addition we have many photos, copy documents, artifacts, pictures and family treasures - we are in the process of setting up a mini migration museum. 

Both this web site and the reorganisation of our collections is very much a new and  ongoing task. We are staffed entirely by volunteers.
