Over the past yr and a half, Genealogical.com has consolidated two sequence of books by Dr. David Dobson that have been initially printed in a number of installments.
The primary of those was Scots-Irish Hyperlinks, 1525-1825: Consolidated and Listed Version. In Two Volumes, initially printed in 15 elements however missing an index. To rectify these shortcomings, we re-numbered all the unique books in a single numerical sequence and connected a full-name index to the again of every of the 2 consolidated volumes, offering the reader with a simple means of figuring out everybody discovered therein. Lots of the individuals so recognized have been younger males from Eire–many bearing Scottish surnames–attending universities in Scotland. Nonetheless different Scots-Irish hyperlinks have been apprentices, ministers, retailers, weavers, academics, or individuals in flight. In a variety of circumstances Dr. Dobson can also be capable of present info on the person or girl’s partner, kids, native origins, landholding, and, in fact, the supply of the knowledge. Whereas there isn’t a certainty that every of the individuals recognized in these volumes, or their descendants, in the end emigrated to America, undoubtedly many did or possessed kinsmen who did.
This spring, we launched the one-volume Consolidated version of the ten-part sequence, Irish Emigrants in North America. As with the Scots-Irish work above, we now have added a complete index of names to facilitate the reader’s search via all ten Components. Furthermore, the index identifies the various different Irish individuals named within the emigrant profiles who could possibly be ignored by merely consulting the alphabetical association of emigrants.
The writer has organized this record of roughly 8,500 emigrants alphabetically in every of the ten elements of this work by the person’s surname and, within the majority of circumstances, supplies many of the following particulars: age, identify of ship, occupation in Eire, motive for and the supply of the knowledge. Generally the entries additionally specify the emigrant’s place of birth in Eire, place of disembarkation within the New World, date of arrival, and names or variety of different individuals within the family.
You will need to point out that there are connections to be made between these two works. About 95% of the people named in Irish Emigrants in North America left the Emerald Isle earlier than the Nice Famine of the 1840s, and no less than half of them are of Scots-Irish provenance—the idea for the sooner two-volume consolidation. This raises questions like this one: Is the Robert Ramsey, who emigrated from Londonderry for Philadelphia in 1785, or the William Ramsey, who departed from Belfast for New Citadel, Delaware, in 1789 a descendant of the Andrew Ramsey, who filed a will in Derry in 1721, or the Andrew Ramsey, who was grasp of the vessel, Windfall of Saltcoats in Belfast in 1686? Further analysis could present the reply to those and quite a few different attainable connections between the folks within the two consolidated works, BUT THE CLUES, the all-important beginning factors, are right here.
