Hi folks, here is a new URL sent to me by the website owner. He's got all of "Bolton" on line -- that's one of the two books that are the starting points for study of the Scotch Irish in America (other being Hanna's "Scotch-Irish", free on line at www.ancestry.com as 'Scots-Irish'. ... If you can't find it I can't help you...try emailing ancestry?????? ... I got the book so I don't use it at ancestry).
Anyway, nice looking website with some helpful info.

We also have a website dedicated to providing information on the history of Ulster and the Scotch Irish/Ulster Scots.
A time line history of Ulster which goes into very fine detail - in some cases hour by hour.
A detailed description of the migration of people from Ulster to the New World in the 1700's. Describing the conditions in Ulster prior to the migrations and the hardships and successes gained in America. This information is very surname rich and is useful to genealogists.
this section also includes:
- A list of ships arriving in New England from Ireland from 1714 - 1720
- Signatories of the Petition to Governor Shute in 1718
- A list of Members of the Charitable Irish Society in Boston
- A list of names of fathers on the Presbyterian Baptismal Records in Boston, 1730-1736
- A list of surnames showing home towns of Ulster families, 1691-1718.
A Siege of Londonderry Database which tells the story of the siege and features a surname search where you can identify people (and in most cases some biographical info) who are mentioned in the Primary and Secondary sources as being present during the Siege (on either side). Also features portraits of the main players and other illustrations.
