Erin’s Sons: Irish Arrivals in Atlantic Canada.
By Terrence M. Punch, FRSAI. Published by Genealogical Publishing Co. 2008-2013. Four volumes, each approx. 200 pages.
Atlantic Canada refers to the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and (more recently) Newfoundland. The time frame for these volumes is generally 1761-1863, with exceptions described in the early pages.
The four volumes (I have only seen Volumes II and IV) include introductory pages explaining the records being transcribed, maps depicting the regions, Irish historical notes, and the author’s commentary, including his comments on the complexity of doing Irish research. The volumes contain extracts of data from a wide variety of sources, chiefly public records, newspapers, and cemetery records.
