CORNISH GLOBAL MIGRATION PROGRAMME
THE DIASPORA OF THE PEOPLE OF CORNWALL
When the year of death is known we can extract a chart setting out the decade of death. This has several interesting aspects. First, it shows just how wide the time spread is of our records, you will see the decades in which death occurred range from the ten years ending in 1589 to the ten years ending in 2019. This tells us that there are no time limits to our study. An interesting aspect is the recording of those who died in recent years, this helps to explain why so many in Cornwall are aware of the migration progress through being aware of relations in foreign parts. The chart obviously only includes those who year of death we have traced, we need to do much more research in tracing the year of death of many of those in our records and we would like to add considerable to those who migrated pre-1800. Please remember that we do not include living people in our records.
