A history of Emigration from Ceredigion to Ohio

In 1818 the first of many emigrated from Ceredigion to the hoped-for promised land of America. By 1848 many hundreds more had done so, whole families had upped sticks and helped establish a thriving new community in Ohio at the heart of the New World. Fully two centuries later this book tells the story of some of those individuals and families, their descendants and of the cultural legacy left by this mass emigration on both sides of the Atlantic. Most of the content has been written by the descendants of settlers or those left behind. In drawing together these two communities, old and new, it has been striking how deep the affinity remains despite the passing of generations.
