    If you don't know anything beyond what you've heard from your parents, that you are partly Scotch Irish, this is a good place to start :-)

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.

Scotch-Irish Immigrant -- I wonder how many people realize that the Scotch-Irish were *Scottish*, and not Irish....They were Scots that moved to Ireland {who then later moved to America}. *shakes head*

    Yeah, my moms side of the family is from Scotland. All of them have like black/dark brown curly hair and light blue/green eyes. It's crazy how different but the same each of them look.

    I am Scottish/Irish. My great-grandfather was Irish, my great-grandmother was Scottish. They didn't go to Ireland-they went to England and then to the US. Every situation was different.
