The Irish-Canadian List:
This list contains the names
of Irish immigrants who settled in Canada and who are being researched by
other genealogists. Information can include names, dates, and places in both
Ireland and Canada. The list is currently being revamped to make it more

the Bounty mutineers. That is, not unless your family happens to be
among them, then all bets are off. :-) Around 170 names.
