“Moving Here explores, records and illustrates why people came to England over the last 200 years and what their experiences were and continue to be. It offers free access, for personal and educational use, to an online catalogue of versions of original material related to migration history from local, regional and national archives, libraries and museums.
Moving Here gives visitors to the site the opportunity to publish their own experience of migration.
The vision for Moving Here is:
- To overcome barriers to the direct involvement of minority ethnic groups in recording and documenting their own history of migration
- To ensure this history is passed on to the next generation through schools
The Moving Here partnership, led by the National Archives, is a consortium of 30 archives, libraries and museums who contributed material to the catalogue of 200,000 items on the website.”
