“The First Frontiersmen: The Scots-Irish”

Presented by:  Maureen Brady

Some refer to them as Ulster Scots, others as Scots-Irish.  Whatever their name, they  are the U. S. descendants of those who were “planted” in the Ulster province of Ireland in the   17th century and subsequently immigrated to the American frontier.  Their famous sons include Daniel Boone and Andrew Jackson, and we see their cultural influence in square dancing and country music. This presentation will review the history of the Scots-Irish and  suggest resources for researching their family histories.
