Having Trouble Telling Scottish Emigrants Apart?

William Falconer and Ann Falconer, his wife,
Scotch Settlement Cemetery
If your mind has become tortured by trying to differentiate between Scottish emigrants who all seemed to be called Donald McLean, John Smith, or James Forbes, you might be interested in my recent article, "Tartan Tangles: Unraveling Scots with the Same Names" in the January/February issue of Family Chronicle. The basis for the article is Scotch Settlement in Columbiana County, OH, the subject of my PhD dissertation.

Copies are available at Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Chapters or through the Family Chronicle Website here (real or PDF). Alternatively, you can download the Family Chronicle App at iTunes for $1.99 (includes the app, plus one issue of your choice).
