The Scottish Blue Family in North America
By Douglas F. Kelly
The Scottish Blue Family in North America traces the story of several large colonies of Blues who emigrated from Argyll in Scotland from the 1740s to the 1850s to North Carolina, New York, and Canada. The volume is a massive revision of the 1982 book and now includes an index of over 27,600 names. Historical context is intertwined with the genealogies. In addition to the fifteen different families of Scottish emigrants, two prominent African-American families are also traced, whose ancestors were connected with the North Carolina Blues. Hardbound about 1850 pages.
