Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A detailed study of the 19th-century Irish Catholic immigrants in Christchurch. The text explores issues of ethnicity, kinship and community in colonial contexts, and makes comparisons to the North American experience. It uses a variety of government, local body and church records to track individuals and families, and to show how they adjusted to a new environment by forging durable social networks based on ethnic ties.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 166-201) and index.
