From Ulster to Carolina is very interesting if you have any interest in Scoth-Irish immigration to the New World of North America.

This book is very informative and well written. It provides good insight into the cultural aspects of the Ulster-Scot immigrates. It was very helpful to me in my quest to determine whether my ancestors were Highlanders, Lowlanders, or Scotch-Irish.

Excellent service. Great book about migration from Ulster in Ireland to the backcountry of PA, VA, NC, and SC in 18th Century.

From Ulster to Carolina is very interesting if you have any interest in Scoth-Irish immigration to the New World of North America. This book explains why the Scotts were in Ireland and how they lived. It also tells why and how they left to go to the Colonies and then to the United States. I found it very interesting in describing the way the Scotch-Irish people settled and survived in the new frontier of the Carolinas as my own ancestors were among them and I know where they lived. It makes it easier to understand how and why they did things as I work on my family history although my family is not mentioned in the book.

The story of the Scot-Irish who migrated to Carolina is very well written and informative. The story is one that will make the descendants of Scot-Irish ancestors more informed about the migration to the new world. The book tells of the hard times and the determination of these brave and honorable people. I also recommend the book "The Scotch Irish" which can be purchased from Amazon.

being of irish heritage it was fascinating to see the path of the irish through southern america. my family stayed north but no doubt had relatives that arrived in southern ports. going back to omagh and the ulster/american museum gives you an inkling of the miserable conditions that they had to live in as cromwell's actions created a need to leave in order to survive. america and the west gave these people a chance to grow and prosper. the book illustrates this tenacity and willingness to take chances and give families that chance to survive.

If you are an amateur genealogist of Scot-Irish descent, this book will assist you in following the immigration routes in the US. This is not a deep analysis, but it does give good basic information.
