CVGS General Meeting (in a Zoom Video Conference)

"The Scots-Irish Migration into America”
presented by Peggy Clemens Lauritzen

Many Americans can trace their ancestry back to the British Isles. Some have even heard that their background was “Scotch-Irish.” This presentation will focus on the “Scots-Irish.” Just who are they and what brought them to America? Why did they settle in New York, Canada, New England, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and the Appalachian frontier?

Peggy Clemens Lauritzen has been an Accredited Genealogist for nearly twenty-five years, and has been involved in genealogy research her entire life. She is the author of several Legacy QuickGuides on Appalachia, an instructor at Ancestry Academy and Family Tree University, an instructor at several GRIP and SLIG courses, and a columnist for Reminisce magazine. In 2018, she was the recipient of the Laura G. Prescott Award for Exemplary Service to Professional Genealogy and became a Fellow of the Ohio Genealogical Society. She is a former researcher at Ancestry ProGenealogists.
