BOOKs on CD - Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants to Canada Before Confederation (pre-1867) Vol. 1, 2, 3 & 4
by: Donald Whyte.

Donald Whyte's volumes of A Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants to Canada before Confederation (pre-1867) are a major contribution to the documentation of Canadian immigration before 1867. The labour of many years, the series has been appreciated by historians, biographers, and genealogists.

The Scots, for decades Canada's third largest ethnic group, have been vigorous in every field of endeavor. The author claims that the Scots have contributed more than any other ethnic group, to the making of a transcontinental nation.

These volumes are an indespensible tool for those in search of their Scottish ancestry. Much of the material is unique. The author consulted numerous sources, printed and manuscript, and, by extensive corespondence gathered much information that would not otherwise have been saved for posterity. It is impossible not to be grateful for this enormous labour of love.
