Researching Our Ulster Lines

Discovering that Rebecca Bradford's father, Samuel Bradford, is of Scots-Irish origin (as verified by the Bradford DNA project - search previous posts for more information), has been a mixed blessing. After years and years of research, it is great to know where he came from, but the bad news is that there are so few records available for that area in the 1600's and 1700's.

I love their free online newsletter ( and hold out hope that someday I will see the name BRADFORD while reading it!

Hopefully sites like this will help us to pinpoint precisely which county and town in Ulster Samuel came from, as we have just about exhausted the U. S. records available
