The Quiet Adventurers in North America (Canada)
Marion G. Turk.
The Channel Islands, primarily Guernsey and Jersey, contributed greatly to the influx of immigrants to the American colonies and the young United States. The bulk of this work is a genealogical dictionary which identifies thousands of known (or probable) Channel Island immigrants to America, and some of their descendants. One section gives brief sketches of well-known Americans who had Island roots. This printing is a reprint of the 1984 edition with the addition of six pages of corrections and additions.
