Scottish Emigration Database

Scotland has given the world a great many things, and during the 19th century, many Scots set sail to seek their fortune in other parts of the world. Social historians and others will be glad to know that the University of Aberdeen's Centre for Irish and Scottish Studies has created this online database of Scottish emigrants. Currently, visitors can examine the records of over 21,000 passengers who embarked at Glasgow and Greenock for other ports. While the database only covers a small time period, the database is well-designed for general use. First-time visitors should take a look at the "User Guide", which includes details about the different fields used in each record, such as "occupation", "urban district/village", and "destination port".
