The Great Migration



In those unstable times, many had no choice but to leave their beloved homelands. Sickness and poverty hounded travelers to North America, but those who made it were welcomed with land and opportunity.

Early passenger and immigration lists reveal many Scottish settlers bearing the name Kenoway: members of the family who migrated to the New World and contributed to the development of North American society.
