The website is totally fantastic, a brilliant idea and I love it!!!
I found it easy to use and navigate around and much enjoyed the range of
subjects. I've had a good look around it but need to spend much more
time as there is a great deal there. I've already found some new details
of my ancestors from the data base and found the name search very easy
to use. I can't really add anything more as you have got it all
designed and arranged perfectly as far as I can see.
Good luck with the site.

Just a quick email to congratulate you on your PhD and to say how useful
I have found your new web site. You were kind enough to assist me with
my family tree as I had relatives, Paull and Jenkin, who emigrated to

Firstly, I want to send you my sincere congratulations for your excellent website on the Cornish in Latin America. Otherwise, it has helped me to make an idea of your work thanks to your curriculum enclosed. I wish you success in your searching.

I have had a look at your splendid website. It is all very interesting.
You have put in a very great amount of study to produce all this, and
the results are impressive! The pictures add a great deal of sparkle to
it. It's an excellent site, and I also congratulate you on its design.

I've taken a look at your website...............WOW! I found it was very
informative, nicely laid out and easy to navigate. I must admit to
reading a good 85-90% and found it all very interesting. It almost wants
to make me chase up my family roots. The articles about the steam
engines were also very interesting, and you manage to explain it in a
way that even I could understand and that's no mean feat! All in all
well done, it must really have been a lot of work.

Your work on the Website Cornish in Latin America is wonderful. With
emotion I saw that you included a photo of Eliza's and William's
headstone in the English Cemetery in Coquimbo. Congratulations on your
work and I do hope we can meet some day.
Perhaps one of the best sites I have seen
concerning the Cornish and the great migration. During the past four or
five years I have occasionally met Dr Sharron P. Schwartz and her
knowledge, research ability and enthusiasm leaves me breathless. A visit
to this site is a must.

I've just been looking at your website and I am very impressed. I have
been away from this for a while now and just getting back into this
research. It is great to know how much people are doing in the area of
Britons in Latin America.

A beautiful website. I've book-marked it and will return at intervals.

Thanks for a wonderful site, it's so nice that people are interested in
each other enough to go to great troubles to help one another.
It's great to know that people are interested in preserving our
histories, they are all, individually, such small drops, but together
they do make an ocean of limitless fascination.
I think that your web site is excellent and it is very generous of you
to make the results of your research freely available.

I am delighted you have opened a web-site about the migration of the
Cornish to Latin American Countries as I have been trying to find out
more about my family who migrated to Pachuca and Real del Monte in
Mexico. Congratulations on your achievements. I hope we can find
out a lot more about our ancestors by pooling information. I for
one am more than happy to contribute in any way I can.
I came upon your website this evening. May I say how impressed I was and
relieved also to at last find something really worthwhile on the web
regarding Cornwall and Latin America ?
Alan David Coleman-Harvey, Regent's Park,
Congratulations for your beautiful website about the Latin American
Cornish miners. As a descendant of one, I was very pleased to find a
site where the only focus was Latin America. Most of the information
relates to the US, Canada and Australia emigration, but not Latin

Your website is brilliant!! I often wondered what you were going to do

I was delighted to discover your website whilst researching my maternal
grandfather Samuel Harvey who was MP for Totnes. After looking at old
family photos, I did a web trawl & I came across your website with info
about my great grandfather Sir Robert Harvey. It is really exciting.

I have just gone into your website because it was given to me by an old
school friend in Sao Paulo, Jean Barton. It was with great emotion that
I looked at the pictures of the Casa Grande and the general one of Morro
Velho. My father, Frederick Harrison, was treasurer of the St. John del
Rey gold mine from 1957-1962 by which time it was Mineracao Morro Velho,
no longer St. John del Rey. I can remember a couple called Clemence
while we lived in Nova Lima (Morro Velo being the name of the mountain
there). I think, if I recall correctly, my brother, sister and I used
to have to walk along a little path past their house and then on up a
hill to the little school which looked down on it. We were always wary
of the path because of snakes!
I look forward to exploring your site
much more thoroughly very soon!
I very much appreciate your site, having only in the last week
discovered it through a link from the Gwennap OPC link on Genuki
Clarence Simmons, Canada
A fascinating website and as I have just returned from Chile and
Argentina it was doubly interesting. I had just visited the Welsh
agricultural colony in the Lower Chubut valley (which still has 3 - 5
thousand Welsh speakers) and the industrial emigration from Cornwall was
quite different in nature. I note the strong links with S Wales in the
data and I presume the Cornish-Welsh links are well researched in terms
of Copper/Tin and Coal, plus the Methodists of course.

Congratulations for your excellent website Cornish in Latin America. As

First of all thanks for your excellent 'Cornish in Latin America' web
I am interested in (and descended from) the Youlton family of Cornwall -
Emily Youlton born in St Agnes in 1869 was my Great Grandmother. I have
been intrigued for some time by evidence that some of the Youltons were
in Latin America, so your work has added a lot to my knowledge of the
background to that migration and some details in the form of names and
Thank you for an excellent website. It is my first real success in
tracing my ancestors in Brazil. They being the Nicholas family in Morro
Velho from St Agnes.
