We collect and uncover the migration stories from the North of Ireland through genealogy, public outreach, archaeology, and research.
The Ulster-Scots story in Maine, and their influence on New England has been greatly overlooked and oversimplified by traditional historical narratives. U.S. census data (2000) confirms that Maine has, per capita, the highest percentage of self-identified Scots descendants in the entire USA, and ranks third in the country for Scots-Irish descendants. We want to put those stories in our history books and understand why they have been forgotten.
