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. After
studying Scottish emigration to Canada for a number of years, Lucille acquired a
Ph D on the subject from the University of Aberdeen.
In 2016 she was awarded the
prestigious Prix du Quebec by the Quebec government in recognition of her
ongoing contribution to Canadian immigration studies.
Lucille and Geoff Campey live near Salisbury in England.
Geoff Campey was born in Chester, England. He graduated in mathematics and worked for many years as a manager in the chemical industry. He acquired his computer skills in 1960 working on one of the early scientific computers and has worked with 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.
