Note on Terminology

Scots-Irish, Scotch-Irish, Ulster-Scots - Do you know the difference?

Scotch-Irish is an American term referring to people largely of Scottish heritage who emigrated from northern parts of Ireland in the 18th century and settled in interior parts of colonies (later states) from Pennsylvania south to South Carolina.  Especially in the southeastern U.S., it has been the predominant term for these settlers and their descendants for more than three hundred years.  For more information, please visit
