Summary, etc.: "Searching for Scotch-Irish Roots is the first book to collect the evidence scattered throughout manuscripts and some published works held in libraries and archives throughout Scotland, especially in the southwest. Mr. Dobson divides the records into five main categories: Church Records, Town (Burgh) Records, Court Records, Miscellaneous Government Records, and University and other private record collections. Subsumed within these categories, researchers will discover a panoply of rich sources. Mr. Dobson provides detailed descriptions of the diverse record types available in Scottish libraries and archives, such as Presbytery (church) records, Apprentice (Burgh) records, Consistorial Processes and Decreet (court) records, Registers of Sasines (government records), and Family and Estate Papers (Private & Miscellaneous Records)."--Publisher website (December 2008).
