When we think of our ancestors who traveled here to North America and others who journeyed to Australia and New Zealand we are reminded of how brave they were. Although for folks in Scotland and Ireland in the1700s and 1800s the New World was likely worth the risk as well as for good people who had no choice in the decision.
