About this webinar

Known in their homeland as Ulster-Scots, these mainly Lowland Scots left their homeland and settled in Ulster during the Plantation, sometimes staying only for a few generations and then many made their way to the New World. Why did these Scots come to Ulster and why did they then subsequently leave? What were the push and pull factors? Why did Presbyterian ministers have such sway over these people? We will look at the perils they faced on their transatlantic journey and what they found when they arrived in the new world. We will examine the range of records and sources where you may find your Ulster-Scots ancestors and that can tell you more about this pioneering ethnic group that produced a number of US Presidents and millions of descendants worldwide today.

    I’m a history buff (or so I thought), but I learned so much from this webinar! Many of my ancestors and relations moved back and forth between Ulster and Scotland in the 1800s. Hopefully I can trace some back into the 1700s with the help of some of the new resources I learned about from this talk. Also, love to listen to a Northern Ireland accent… takes me back to my grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, etc.

    Thank you for the interesting talk. The source list is really fantastic. It is so hard to find sources for the 16th and 17th hundreds.
