8 Genealogical Memoirs of the Family of Robert Burns and of the Scottish House of Burnes
Charles Rogers
(1877), 2008, 5˝x8˝, paper, 68 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Previously described as "in reality being a peasant," Rogers provides insight into the lineage of this Scottish poet, which includes the Burnes and Keiths. The family name was originally Burnes; variations include: Burnace, Burnice, and Burness. "The present work is chiefly founded on Dr. James Burnes' 'Notes on his Name and Family,' a thin duodecimo privately printed in 1851, and on entries in the parochial and other registers." Of particular interest, an "accurate account is for the first time presented of the circumstances under which the poet's grandfather, Robert Burnes, quitted the farm of Clochnahill, an event bearing materially on the latter history of the family. To render the genealogical narrative minute and accurate, no effort has been spared." Entries include varying amounts of genealogical information. An index to names, places and subjects augments the text.

9 Scottish Monuments and Tombstones, Volume 1
Charles Rogers, LL.D.
(1871), 2008, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 552 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
"Monuments are as milestones in the path of civilization" declares the author in the preface to this work, on which he spent eleven years and in which he presents information from about 250 parishes, grouped by county. While the two volumes do not cover every Scottish parish, "the omissions are not very numerous." The counties covered in this volume are: Ayrshire, Berwickshire, Dumfriesshire, Edinburghshire, Haddingtonshire, Kirkcudbrightshire, Lanarkshire, Linlithgowshire, Peeblesshire, Renfrewshire, Roxburghshire, Selkirkshire and Wigtonshire. The tombstones dealt with in this work date from as long ago as the 13th century. For each parish there typically appear some quoted tombstone inscriptions, plus some description of the cemetery and sometimes some history of it or connected with it. Sources are cited at the bottom of pages on which they appear, and for greater ease of reference an everyname index is appended to each volume. The frontispiece is an engraving of Sir Walter Scott's monument in Edinburgh.

10 Scottish Monuments and Tombstones, Volume 2
Charles Rogers, LL.D.
(1872), 2008, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 452 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Following on the work of Volume 1, this book presents information from an additional 250 parishes grouped by county. The counties covered in this volume are: Aberdeenshire, Argyleshire, Banffshire, Buteshire, Caithness-Shire, Clackmannanshire, Dumbartonshire, Elginshire, Fifeshire, Forfarshire, Inverness-Shire, Kincardineshire, Kinross-shire, Nairnshire, Orkney, Perthshire, Ross and Cromarty, Stirlingshire and Sutherlandshire. The appendix contains additional material from the following counties covered in Volume 1: Dumfriesshire, Edinburghshire, Fifeshire, Kincardineshire, Kirkcudbrightshire, Lanarkshire, Roxburghshire and Wigtonshire. For each parish there typically appear some quoted tombstone inscriptions (in some cases as early as 13th c.), plus some description of the cemetery and sometimes some history of it or connected with it. Some odd facts are brought to light, such as that in one particular parish "the peasantry obtain their winter fuel by storing up portions of decayed coffins from the churchyard." Sources are cited at the bottom of pages on which they appear, and for greater ease of reference an everyname index is appended to each volume. The frontispiece is an engraving of Sir William Wallace's monument on Abbey Craig in Stirling.

Scottish Emigration to Colonial America, 1607-1785, David Dobson


11 Scottish Emigration to Colonial America, 1607-1785
David Dobson
280 pages, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 1 photo, paperback / softcover, University of Georgia Press
Before 1650, only a few hundred Scots had trickled into the American colonies. However, by the early 1770s the number had risen to 10,000 per year and would reach a total of around 150,000 by 1785. Who were these Scots? What did they do? Where did they settle? What factors motivated their emigration? David Dobson's work draws on original research on both sides of the Atlantic to comprehensively identify the Scottish contribution to the early settlement of North America.

About Author
David Dobson is an honorary research fellow with the Research Institute of Irish and Scottish Studies, King's College, University of Aberdeen. He is the author of nearly fifty genealogical or historical sourcebooks.

Reviews
"Solidly researched and well-written." —Eighteenth-Century Scotland

"A useful survey that undoubtedly will be the standard work on the subject for a good while to come." —North Carolina Historical Review

"A brief but impressive piece of scholarship that is particularly valuable for its incorporation of Canada and the West Indies into the discussion of the Scottish presence in America." —Georgia Historical Quarterly

"Dobson . . . seems to have visited most of the major local and national archives on both sides of the Atlantic and to have compiled a vaster array of published materials about Scottish migrants to the Americas than any previous writer." —William and Mary Quarterly

15 CD: An Historical Account of the Settlements of Scotch Highlanders In America
J. P. MacLean
(1900), 2004, CD, Adobe Acrobat, PC and MAC, 458 pp, Heritage Books
This detailed tome opens with a brief history of the Highlanders in Scotland, followed by an account of Highlanders in the Colonies. Other topics include settlement in NC, and GA, Captain Campbell's NY Colony, settlement on the Mohawk, Prince Edward Island and Pictou (Nove Scotia), Highlanders in the French and Indian War and on both sides of the Revolution, and distinguished Highlanders in America. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.

17 Tracing Your Scottish Ancestry, 3rd edition
Kathleen B. Cory
250 pages, Polygon / Interlink Publishing Group
Ancestor hunting has been very much a growth industry in the last thirty years, by no means confined to Scotland. Yet its scale has been exceptional there, probably because of the huge amount of emigration that began in the seventeenth century and reached its peak after the Second World War. It has been estimated that worldwide there could be as many as 20 million people of Scottish extraction.

This book is the ideal companion for all those who want to discover their Scottish roots. Clearly laid out and meticulously written, it offers detailed yet straightforward instructions on completing search of your family history, using all the resources available, and explains the complexities of the available records and sources. In addition to detailed descriptions of the sources, the book also includes facsimile illustrations of the kind of documents the ancestor hunter is likely to encounter and contact details for useful organizations. Details on heraldry, tartans, surnames and information on how to draw up a family tree are also included. It also contains a step-by-step case study which serves as a model for research.


About Author
The late Kathleen B. Cory was a recognised genealogist who was based in Edinburgh and travelled extensively to lecture on Scottish genealogy. She died in 2002.

Who Were Those Celts?: The German-French-Swiss-Italian-Scottish-Welsh-English-Irish American Connection, Kevin Duffy


18 Who Were Those Celts?: The German-French-Swiss-Italian-Scottish-Welsh-English-Irish American Connection
Kevin Duffy
(1996), 2007, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 268 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
This concise 3,000-year history of the Celts is packed with facts never before assembled together in a single volume. Much of this information cannot be found even in previous books written about the Celts. While of obvious interest to the 40 million Americans of Irish ancestry, it will also fascinate many who identify with the Scottish, the Welsh and the English. Britain was once a Celtic island and, along with Scotland and Wales, is still part Celtic. With its succinct style and a minimum of jargon, this work is intended to appeal to a general readership. Its original presentation and the gems it contains make it a timeless reference work, different from any other book ever published on the Celts.
