Please join us at our YAHOO GROUP where it is easier to discuss the Scottish prisoners of war and the Y-DNA Study.
“This group focuses on finding our Scots ancestors who were taken prisoner after the Battles of Dunbar (1650) and Worcester (1651), in which the Scots were defeated by the English under Oliver Cromwell. Some were Covenanters, some were Royalists (supporters of Prince Charles). They were later sent to the American Colonies. Our goal is to locate historical data, ships’ lists, prisoner lists, and other information of genealogical value to descendents of the “Scottish Rebels.””
