Walk with your ancestors in the Isle of Man
In common with Ireland and Scotland, the Isle of Man saw large-scale emigration in the later eighteenth and nineteenth centuries as Manx men, women and children left the Island to make a new life in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other far-flung corners of the British Empire. Now large numbers of their descendants are returning to discover where their ancestors lived and worked, were married and were buried.
