110 pages. In the tradition of his earlier books on Dutch, Huguenot, and Polish connections to Scotland, Dr. David Dobson has now collected several thousand references that establish specific immigration connections between Scotland and the future country of Germany for the period 1550 to 1850.While the contents of these transcriptions vary considerably, each one of the roughly 1,200 entries nonetheless identifies a Scottish-German by name, date, city of residence, and the source of information. In many cases, we learn something about an individual's parentage, spouse, vocation, or more. View more info
