Researching Ulster Scots Ancestors

Live Q&A with Instructors March, 18; 2:00–3:30 p.m. (ET)

Do you have ancestors from Ulster? The New England Historic Genealogical Society in Boston is hosting another online conference March 18th.

The Scots-Irish have been migrating from Northern Ireland to the United States and Canada since the early 18th century. As with any genealogical research, there are challenges to researching your Ulster Scots ancestors—finding their exact origins, sifting through common names, working through record loss—but there is a way forward! This online conference aims to provide you with the historical context, record overview, and research strategies to not only make real headway in your family history research, but also provide you with a better understanding of your ancestors’ daily life. This conference will focus on the nine counties within the Ulster Province (Antrim, Armagh, Cavan, Donegal, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry, Monaghan, and Tyrone).
