Topic: anyone with an interest in Scotland and the Scots through genealogy; to conduct friendly discussion about almost anything with a Scottish connection that relates to that interest, so that other Scottish genealogy mailing lists are not cluttered by such postings. Topics include Scottish history, folklore, humour, sayings, language & dialect, tales and songs, similarities and differences between areas of Scotland, and Scots communities and traditions world-wide. This list will NOT focus on surnames and family trees, but will seek to address the culture and lifestyle of our Scottish ancestors and their descendants. Often described as 'getting a feel for' a land and a way of life which may be thousands of miles away and which they may never see.
