Directory of Scottish Settlers in North America, 1625-1825. Vol. VII
Author: David Dobson
Paperback, 109 pages
Although the sixth volume of the "Directory of Scottish Settlers in North America" was said at the time of its publication in 1986 to be the last in the series, subsequent research has brought to light sufficient new material to warrant this seventh volume. Largely a miscellany, this volume draws upon printed books and manuscripts, church records, burgess rolls, probate records, state records, and public records of every description. Typically, all 2,000 entries refer to Scots who emigrated to North America or who are reported to have lived or died there, and they include some or all of the following: place and date of birth, place of residence, names of parents, occupation, name of spouse, date of emigration, place and date of settlement, and date of death.
