Storyboard Text

  • This is my family, my mom, my dad and my older brother. We all live in a farm filled with crops and animals. We all help out my dad with the farm. Like all the other Irish people we are Christian.
  • My mom and dad have both passed from the potato famine. I miss them more every day. I don't think that we can survive here alone. We are both starving and we are running out of money for rent. My brother and i have both decided to move to Toronto for a chance at a better life.
  • To get to Canada my brother and I took the Coffin Ship. During the ride to Toronto many people, including my brother got sea sick. Many more died because of starvation and illness. I was very scared, but i had my brother to comfort me.
  • Finally we reached Grosse Isle, Canada where we were quarantined for a while. We were eagerly waiting for our guards to let us out and back on the boat so we could make our way to Toronto.
  • I couldn't believe it! I was finally in Toronto! That meant that my brother and i didn't have to starve anymore. I wish i could share this moment with my parents but i couldn't. I was still happy though.
  • Ive been in Canada for about two years now and my brother and i both have jobs. I work at a clothing company, and my brother works at a farm. We live in a tiny hut down by the river and we crop and catch our own food. The Canadians here are mostly nice to use, but there are still some who are a bit rude. I have learned over the years to ignore them.
