Meaning of "cemented local loyalties"

“Mobility has scattered families and eroded the continuities that once cemented local loyalties.”

In this context, does cemented local loyalties mean the same as bound local loyalties together?

Yes, Cooliegirly, you could say that ‘to cement’, in your sentence, means ‘to bind together’, ‘to make closer’ or ‘to strengthen’ as in ‘to cement friendship between two countries’ or ‘to cement a relationship’.

Dear Cooliegirly,

Could you please do as a favour and use a more descriptive title in the subject line of your topics? ‘I got a question’ can mean anything. So, please use the subject line to describe your question as succinctly as possible.

Conchita, many thanks for answering Cooliegirly’s question so fast.
