Hi Patricia, Ireland and Scotland have been
next to one another for a long time. As long as
they have been inhabited people have been going
back and forth.
The focus of this list is Ireland, so if you
are seeking in Scotland or England, you should
go to www.genuki.org.uk for assistence. Much
of our information is on our website and focuses
on earlier periods. Check the Links pages for
links to other Irish genealogy lists:
