Directory of Scottish Settlers in North America, 1625-1825. Vol. I
Author: David Dobson
Paperback, 267 pages
Based on documents found in British archives and a handful of published sources, this work has the names of over 5,000 Scottish emigrants appearing in ship passenger lists before 1825. It also has data on about 1,000 Scots who settled in North America between 1625 and 1825. The bulk of the immigrants identified arrived in the U.S. or Canada between 1773 and 1815. The information given on each immigrant varies according to the type of record, but there is a fair mix of data giving age, date of birth, occupation, place of residence, names of family members, date and place of arrival, and circumstances of emigration.
