Migration - is the movement of people from one place to another with the intention of settling in a new location.
Immigration - is the movement of people into another country or region, to which they are not native in order to settle there, especially permanently.
I would probably say that I have never emigrated, migrated or immigrated to another country, but I have definitely emigrated to the white rose county of Yorkshire from the red rose county of Yorkshire. Some would say I was an immigrant to Yorkshire.

I have also spent 3 months in both Malawi, Africa and New Zealand at various points in my past. I loved those trips and they also have special places in my heart for various reasons but I do not have that same connection with those places as I do with Brasil.

|Bradford - my home today|
I have a few ancestors in my family tree who emigrated:
- Grace Midgley, my great, great aunt emigrated to live with her son in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) at the age of 75 years old in 1958
- John Thompson AKA Jack, my great, great uncle emigrated to Australia in 1921 aged 20 years old to start a new life. He married and settled there, we believe his descendants are still there today.
- My younger brother currently lives overseas in mainland Europe, where he has married a lovely German lady, so I can probably say he has emigrated.
I think that most of my ancestors loved the UK and were very settled in their northern counties, as most of my ancestral research is in the counties of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
