Irish Migration Studies in South America
Irish Argentine Historical Society (IAHS)
This web site is intended as a resource for study, and is the collective result of research developed by Members of the IAHS and other persons. These pages contain a broad collection of materials related to the Irish in Argentina and other South American countries, including articles, papers, reviews, databases, a bibliography of over 100 books and articles, and links to connected resources.
This site is particularly helpful to historians, literary scholars, anthropologists, geographers, and others studying migrations, in particular, the Irish and other emigrations from the British Isles to Argentina and other South American countries. Users will find the following sections:
1. Introduction: This section is intended for those with little knowledge of the Irish emigration to Argentina. "Researching the Irish in Argentina" describes the historiography of this emigration, and the discourses that influenced it. The "Bibliography" is an unique source of information arranged by author. The "Timeline" presents a chronology of the major events in Irish, Argentine, and Irish Argentine history. Additionally, some "Databases" of Irish and Irish-Argentines emigrants and settlers have been prepared in order to support research or to make specific look-ups.
2. The Origins: Information about the sending areas in Westmeath, Longford, Wexford, and other counties in Ireland, and contemporary resources that are key to understand the experience of the Irish emigrants bound to Argentina.
3. The Journey: Includes a Passenger List with over 7,000 immigrants, and articles about emigrant ships and nineteenth-century travel.
4. The Settlement: In this section, you will find a list of over 4,300 Irish Settlers in Argentina. There are also particular lists, including Burial Records and Landowners. The "Dictionary of Irish Argentine Biography" is a collection of interesting biographies. The Irish-Argentine Toponymy includes place names in Argentina connected to Ireland and the Irish, and landmarks of the Irish settlements. In addition to this, selected articles about the Irish-Argentine community are included.
5. The Culture/s: We included in this section studies about the cultural values of the Irish Argentines, as well as particular essays about different representations, e.g., language, literature, music, education, sports, and others. There are also research links to contemporary sources.
