Research Your Scots-Irish Family History with Family Tree University

Beginning 29 August, I will be teaching a four week course on researching your Scots-Irish Ancestry for Family Tree University:

Trace Your Scots-Irish Ancestry Back to Ulster

In this four week course, you will gain a basic understanding of the settlement of Ulster in the seventeenth century and the migration of the Ulster-Scots people to America in the seventeenth century. Descriptions of records and lists of websites will help you find many of the documents required to trace your Scots-Irish ancestors back to Ireland. You will also gain an appreciation for the challenges of Irish research. Review exercises and discussion prompts will encourage you to start your research and engage with your classmates.
What You’ll Learn
  • History of the settlement of Ulster and of Scots-Irish migration
  • How to identify Scots-Irish ancestors
  • Understand the limitations of Irish research
  • How to find Irish records
  • Techniques for scaling brick walls

You can find out more about the course and purchase it through the affiliate link in the upper right hand column of this blog.
