Notes on Immigration[edit | edit source]

The Irish did not immigrate to the Pacific Islands in large groups or during specific time periods. They did immigrate individually or a few at a time.

How to Use This Page[edit | edit source]

Search each of the Websites and sources listed under the island(s) where your ancestor lived. Look for clues pointing to a place of origin in Ireland. Each index and source covers a different time period. It's very important to understand what's covered instead of assuming that every Web site and source is complete for every year and every name. Some links lead to articles about immigration.
