title Michael A McInnis, The Maple Leaf and Migration from Prince Edward Island
creator Robb, Andrew
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description The theme of "leaving home" is a familiar one in Island history. Very few Island families have been un- touched by the great out-migrations of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Whether bound for Boston, the Maine lumberwoods, the harvest ex- cursions to the Canadian prairies, or more distant places, Islanders left home by the thousands. The impact of leaving on both the migrants and those left at home provides one of the most powerful and poignant elements in Island social history.
