August 14 through 17 - Brunswick, Maine - Maine Ulster Scots Project’s 1718-2018 Scots-Irish Reunion at Bowdoin College

Since 2006, we have led the effort to examine the Scots-Irish Identity in Maine from its earliest arrival to present day. Using archaeology, genealogy and classical research methods, we are working hard to uncover the consecutive migrations to Maine from the North of Ireland and examine their significance. This is story that is largely untold and it is the story of our neighbors, and the common people who continue to quietly build Maine.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to promote awareness of Maine’s Scots-Irish heritage and to gather, save, and share the stories of Maine’s Scotch-Irish families.

For details, see our web site at https://www.maineulsterscots.com/upcoming-events/2018/8/14/2018-diaspora-reunion-conference and at https://www.maineulsterscots.com/projects in the Archaeology & Education section.
