Podcast - migrants to Britain

A new podcast lecture on migrants to Britain is now available from the National Archives at Kew website (www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/podcasts/new-britons.htm).

From the site:

This talk looks at immigration into Britain from the 16th to the 20th century and the relatively few sources that can be used to trace immigrants entering, and living, in this country. Records discussed can provide vital clues to the overseas origins of denizens or naturalised British citizens, as well as providing insight into their first years in their adopted country.

Based on a talk by Mark Pearsall, duration 54 minutes.
