while doing research on my y line, I found out that a ticket from Ireland to Montreal port was the cheapest of all in north america and I even think to Australia-this seems to have been true for at least a few decades, in the early 1800's, not sure how long it was true for
...I am willing to bet New York beat the price at some point given the huge influx of potato famine poor via NY

-it explains why Mont. was such a popular gateway for immigrants in general and certainly the Irish...i gather it was not a huge deal to move from montreal to other parts, including the states as they used the road Gen Benedict Arnold cut out back when he was a loyal american and brought a big army up from the states to attack Quebec in the US war of Independence

Quite a few of my Irish in my tree arrived in Montreal and then went elsewhere from there. Montreal indeed allows for migration elsewhere in Canada and the USA.
Y-DNA: I1-Z140 (I1-F2642) (AS5, AS6, 14/22/15 etc) traces back to Scotland
mtDNA: traces back to the Netherlands
Heritage: Scottish, Irish, Welsh, English, French, Dutch (Frisian & Dutch), Amerindian
Celto-Germanic (Anglo-Celtic?)
DNA tested in other lines: R1b-M222 (Ireland), R1b-L21 (Ireland), R1b-L21 (Ireland & Scotland), mt-J, R1b-U106(England)
