Scots transported to America

scottish_war_prisoners : Scottish War Prisoners: "This group focuses on finding our Scots Covenanter 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.

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.'"
