Who we are

Welcome to The Mellon Centre for Migration Studies. We are a dedicated migration resource centre on the island of Ireland with specialist expertise in the story of the migration of the peoples of the island of Ireland across the globe.

Our Centre, located outside Omagh, Co Tyrone, offers you the opportunity to access a comprehensive migration library which archives an extensive range of resources that have been collected over more than four decades.

Irish Emigration Database

The Irish Emigration Database (IED) is a virtual archive of original primary material which has been transcribed, digitised and is key-word searchable.  The documents within IED are related to historic Irish migration to North America from 1700-1950.
