Please check the archives or better yet one of the basic books on this topic.
We've probably covered the scholarship several times. The old wives' tales
we not interested in hearing again or even commenting on. You can't really
expect a list of this sort to do more than point you in the general
Hanna "The Scotch Irish" or see the FAQ at
for more ideas.
And gosh, another question, what is the difference between Scots-Irish
>and Scotch-Irish. My guess is none, just wanted to make sure there were

You need to re-read the Welcome message where the basics of this
is covered and you are right they are the same. However having said that
I am sure some fellow will see fit to attack me for saying it. If he does
or posts something rude to the list I will remove him.
We're not adult enough to discuss some topics here apparently without
ending up engaging in behavior that would have us evicted from my grandmother's
We've tried to put the basics in the FAQ. You can also learn a huge
amount by using the Search button on the browser to search for the
string "Scotch-Irish". That'll turn up a number of websites.
Wish we had our own webpage and as soon as I complete about 5 other
tasks in queue ahead of it -- we will. So I'm off to work on those tasks,
though feeling guilty because I'm not going to spend 2 hours typing in
an essay for you.
Best of luck,
