Hi when you signed up for this list you received a Welcome message,
which you were supposed to save. It said...

"The purpose of this list is to explore the ethnic heritage of the
Scotch-
Irish as well as assist you in genealogical research. These people are
concentrated in but not limited to Northern Ireland and/or the Province
of Ulster. The term has come to be used in the United States to indicate
all those who came from Northern Ireland but who were not Gaelic
Irish Catholic -- though many of them had Irish blood. Other names for
these people or subsets of these people include Scots Irish,
Ulster British, Ulster Scots, Orange. Some of them originated in places
other than Scotland, such as England, Holland and France.

The scope of the group reflects the language, history,
migrations, and the realities of researching public records
and genealogical data archives, and includes questions of
local customs and history, or of regional or national history
which affected the lives of these people.

Even if you are not specifically interested in genealogy, you have a
place here if you'd like to share what you know or learn about
localities in
NI or elsewhere, language, history, culture, jokes, and music."

Those who want ONLY genealogy -- you can find it on other lists.

Here's the unsub instructions.
