Scots in Poland, Russia, and the Baltic States, 1550-1850. Part Two
For the concluding volume in this series (Part One was published in 2000), Mr. Dobson examined scores of Scottish primary and secondary sources before producing a list of 1,000 additional Scots who settled in the Baltic (Part One identifi ed 2,500). Arranged alphabetically, entries furnish the individualÔÇÖs name with variants, a place of residence in Eastern Europe, the date of the record, and its source. Given the widely disparate character of the subject matter, one may also fi nd a reference to the individualÔÇÖs place of origin in Scotland, occupation, relationships to other persons named (i.e., parent, spouse, offspring), membership in a fraternal organization, etc. A significant feature of Part Two is the inclusion of verbatim transcriptions of documents that illustrate the kinds of sources that are available to researchers.
