"The Manx Connection" la Register-Mail:

Bishop Hill was a major early destination in what was to become a massive emigration of Swedes to the new world in the 19th century.

What may be surprising to some, though, is to find out that Galva holds a similar position in the eyes of many of those living on the Isle of Man.

Galva is, in fact, so well known as a North American destination for Manx traveling across the ocean that it rated an entire chapter all its own in the recently published book “The Manx Connection,” written by John Quirk.

The book follows Quirk’s travels around the world as he visits Manx societies across the U.S. and in Dubai, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

Manx is a Celtic language spoken on the Isle of Man...
