Documenting the 1718 emigrants to America from Ireland. Primarily Scotch-Irish Presbyterians who settled in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania.
While we document folks who have died, we CONNECT living descendants back to Ireland. A "dead" family means we have found all the data for the 1718 emigrant. However, our work is ALWAYS focused on staying "alive" finding current descendants and their relatives
Did you know the 1718 emigration included Quakers, Anglicans, Catholics? Did you know 1st families settled from Maine down to South Carolina? Did you know families still live in Ireland connected to this emigration? YOUR family history, documents and DNA could be the missing link.
Resources and Links. Simple, right?? Actually, the basic 1718 research is family name, locations, vitals, LIVING descendants. Just like you, I want to find my [insert surname] Boyd family here AND in Ireland. That is our primary goal
From Genealogy conferences to Family reunions to Society meetings to Town events, this is my active listing
Living researchers talking about their families histories. Can you make that 1st link?
