Module 1 of Migration to New Worlds was acquired by JISC Collections for the nation in 2015.  Module 2 is entitled “The Modern Era” and begins with the activities of the New Zealand Company during the 1840s and presents thousands of unique original sources focusing on the growth of colonisation companies during the nineteenth century, the activities of immigration and welfare societies, and the plight of refugees and displaced persons throughout the twentieth century as migrants fled their homelands to escape global conflict.
