The database below is a modified version of that compiled during the course of my PhD that was intended primarily to determine the year of migration, place of departure and destination. The details for each entry have been nominally linked where possible to ensure accuracy and the resulting genealogical details included make it useful for family historians. The records have been compiled from a variety of different sources including newspaper reports, obituaries, birth, marriage and death registers, company work records, census returns, contemporary works, diaries, letters, genealogical details, shipping lists and monumental inscriptions. This database includes perhaps only an eighth of those Cornish who went to Latin America, so if your ancestor is not included or you have information to add to an existing record you may, if you wish, submit the details using the electronic form provided.
