Colonial Scots-Irish Immigrants:

The Irish Records

- Genealogical Societies and Journals

By Kyle J. Betit

The following three genealogical societies in Northern Ireland have accompanying genealogical journals which can be important resources of information for tracing Scots-Irish ancestors. The journals include some extracted local records; these can be accessed using Periodical Source Index (PerSI). In addition, each of these societies publishes "members' interest lists" which list genealogists tracing particular ancestors or surnames.
