Tracing travels across the Atlantic

Professor Marjory Harper

As North America looks ahead to Tartan Week, a tool created by the University of Aberdeen is enabling the descendants of Scots who made the journey across the Atlantic to trace the route taken by their Ancestor.

Professor Marjory Harper, a historian from the Department of History at Aberdeen has spent years researching the stories of the emigrants who set sail for a new life on the other side of the world.

As part of her work, she has spearheaded the creation of a free online tool, The Scottish Emigration Database, which contains the records of 21,000 people who set sail from Scottish ports to cross the Atlantic.
