We show that for a strongly convergent sequence of geometrically finite Kleinian groups with geometrically finite limit, the Cannon–Thurston maps of limit sets converge uniformly. If however the algebraic and geometric limits differ, as in the well known examples due to Kerckhoff and Thurston, then provided the geometric limit is geometrically finite, the maps on limit sets converge pointwise but not uniformly.
