The Great Famine Voices Roadshow is a series of open house  and digital events in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain that brings together Irish emigrants, their descendants, and members of their communities to share family memories and stories of coming from Ireland to North America and the United Kingdom, especially during the period of the Great Hunger and afterwards. A selection of these family memories and stories has been made freely available on this Great Famine Voices online archive. The Great Famine Voices Roadshow in the USA, Canada, and Great Britain is hosted by the National Famine Museum at Strokestown Park, Ireland, and the Irish Heritage Trust, an independent charity. The Roadshow is held in partnership with Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute at Quinnipiac University, the University of Toronto, and the ADAPT Centre at Trinity College Dublin. It is funded by the Government of Ireland Emigrant Support Programme.
