Welcome to the Scots-Irish and Ulster Scots Project


This sub-project of the UK Project is the effort of a group of WikiTree users interested in profiles related to the Scots-Irish and Ulster Scots.

Project members can take primary responsibility for relevant profiles or family groups and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, and removing incorrect information.
