Moran Taing is Scot Gaelic for many thanks. And so, Moran Taing for the many wonderful folks who share their knowledge so generously with us all. Much of the following is their work, and we are grateful to be able to post it here, to help others in their search :)

NOTE from the Webmaster: 

These pages with the green background are from the former Highland Flings website which was maintained by "Chirho" who retired and turned it over to Berwickshire, ScotlandGenWeb.

My deepest thanks to Anne (chirho) and her hundreds of volunteers who spent thousands of hours assembling these comprehensive resources for researchers of Highland Scotland. It is my intent to preserve these records for everyone to enjoy. Thanks Anne. Donald O'Collaugh Kelly

Ships Passenger Lists for New York and New Jersey 1600 - 1825 Compiled by Carl Boyer, 3rd. Published by the Complier, Newhall CA in 1978.
There is a section titled "Early Highland Immigration" which was compiled from "Early Highland Immigration to New York" The Historical Magazine And Notes And Quesries Concerning the Antiquities, History and Biography of America 1 series dated 1861.
It talks about the immigration being the result of an invitation issued by the NY government which was inviting settlers from Europe. In the years from 1738 to 1742 many Scottish highlanders were brought over by Capt. Lauchlin Campbell and some others.
There are numerous names in this and the information indicates the person (male and females both) and in some cases includes their children's names or where the family is from and in some cases indicates maiden names of the females. May indicate where they were going or when they died.

Come back often!
