This is a treasure trove of migration patterns for Irish and Scots. You have to look past the fact they call Scots, Scotch...which is a drink. There was a time when this was an acceptable term. This is an excellent resource. Enjoy and learn.
Beginnings of the Ulster-Scots / Scotch-Irish. A short extract of Ireland about the Plantation of Ulster (Reiver families were shipped here in clearances from the Borderlands, others came willingly looking for a new life, new beginnings), the beginnings of the Ulster-Scots and why so many later emigrated to America.
