The distinguished Scottish genealogist Donald Whyte was the first person to assemble a directory of the thousands of Scots who immigrated to the United States prior to 1855, when compulsory registration of births, marriages and deaths began in Scotland. And what an achievement it is, for herein are listed some 6,500 Scottish emigrants, gleaned from a variety of sources in Scotland and the U.S. Alphabetically arranged by the head of each household, the entries typically furnish the emigrant’s name, his (or her) age, place of origin, name of ship, date and place of arrival in the U.S., and the source of the information. In many instances Whyte supplies supplementary biographical information on the emigrant, such as occupation, education, reason for emigration, and person indentured to, as well as the names of family members and other companions traveling with the emigrant.
