Lucille Campey was born in Ottawa Canada and moved to England following her marriage to Geoff. Having trained as a scientist, she later entered the world of politics when she became an adviser to a cabinet minister during the John Major years. An ongoing love of history led her into another world around twenty years ago. Having obtained a PhD on Scottish immigration to Canada from the University of Aberdeen, she went on to write eight books on the subject all published in Canada by Dundurn. She then went on to write three similar books on Canada’s English immigrants (see www.englishtocanada.com ). She has recently completed two of three books on the Irish (see www.irishtocanada.com)..
In 2016 she was awarded the prestigious Prix du Quebec by the Quebec government in recognition of her ongoing contribution to Canadian immigration studies.
Geoff Campey was born in Chester, England. He graduated in mathematics and worked for many years as a manager in the chemical industry. He started developing his computer skills in 1960 when he worked on one of the early scientific computers and has been fascinated by computers ever since. Geoff does some of the research; produces the maps and tables used in Lucille's books and takes some of the photographs used as illustrations. He designed this web site.
