useful but over-priced,
This review is from: Scots in Poland, Russia and the Baltic States, 1550-1850 (Paperback)
This book is of interest and use to geneologists and historians of Scotland and the Baltic States. Basically, it is a list of names of Scottish migrants who settled Central and North-Eastern Europe during the 16th-19th centuries. It is NOT an in-depth history, more like a historical roll-call, giving names, places and status (and the original sources)of these migrants.
Much of the information comes from Fischer's books about Scots in Prussia and Germany (available on the Electric Scotland website)but strangely it does not include all the names which Fischer does.
I personally found the book interesting and useful but hellishly over-priced as a second hand item. I note that new items are actually cheaper.
