The Ulster-Scots Community Network (USCN) is a representative umbrella organisation with over 400 member groups that promotes awareness and understanding of the Ulster-Scots tradition in history, language and culture. Through a continuing programme of wide-ranging projects, USCN highlights the significant contribution of the Ulster-Scots community to the development of life in Northern Ireland, the border counties of the Republic of Ireland, and the wider Ulster-Scots diaspora.
The Ulster-Scots Community Network has published a number of books concerning the lives of those in Scotland, Ulster, and their descendants throughout the world. Best of all, electronic versions of the documents are available free of charge.
If you have an interest in the history and the people of Scotland and Ulster, you can find the books at on the USCN at http://ulster-scots.com/publications. You might also want to check out the rest of the Ulster-Scots Community Network web site by starting at http://ulster-scots.com/.
My thanks to newsletter reader Mike Mallett for telling me about these books.
