Scotland Remains in United Kingdom

Cliffs of Mull, Galloway, Scotland
 Scotland remains in UK !   Scotland's decision to remain part of the United Kingdom is a "thinker" for genealogists.  Since the early 17th century, Scottish, Scotch-Irish, and Irish immigrants began flooding the colony of South Carolina.  The reason was "religious freedom".  Researchers of Scottish relatives should search Chester, Chesterfield and Laurens Counties because so many groups came into these counties. So, what was the beginning, before families became Scotch-Irish.  Some of the oldest families came from Galloway Scotland, and from there trickled down into Antrim, Ireland, and finally, South Carolina. It is a fun research project to learn the locations of ancient clans and their histories!
