"Growing up in North Carolina, I always knew we had a huge group of Scotch-Irish settlers in the Piedmont of the Carolinas, but I didn't understand their ancestry. Were they from Scotland or Ireland?" Jennifer Hudson Taylor looks for an answer on her blog.
In her search, she came across the book The Scotch-Irish: A Social History by James G. Leyburn and published by the North Carolina University Press. The book begins in early 17th century Scotland and follows the path of the immigrants to the Carolinas.
