The Surnames of Scotland

Return to Ulster-Scot Home Page


For those who are just beginning to search for their ancestors, this will prove helpful. Dr. George Black an official of the New York Public Library spent 48 years researching and writing his book "The Surnames of Scotland". Dr. Black passed away during the 2nd WW and the library published his book in his honor after the war. This book can be found in main libraries.


The example pages listed are of Robert Croc my ancestor of whom I had absolutely no knowledge of until I read this book. It will give you a great insight on your name, its origins and where it is found in Scotland.
