by The Scotch-Irish Society of America
The Scotch-Irish Society of America was founded in 1889 and published the proceedings of its annual conference for the first ten years. The first conference of the society was held in Columbia, Tennessee, in May 1889. The society was originally founded to promote and preserve Scotch-Irish heritage and history. This was reflected in the addresses at this congress in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. Topics such as the Scotch-Irish in New England, the Scotch-Irish in Ohio, the Scotch-Irish in Pennsylvania, General Sam Houston and the Prestons of America were all spoken on. There were also lists of the members of the organizing committee and the State committees included. This series will prove very beneficial to anyone interested in Scotch-Irish ancestry.
