currently reading: “Wilson”

“They were Scottish in their nature, and the only suggestion of Irish influence could be detected in the occasional extravagance in personality.”
– “Wilson,” A. Scott Berg

not only, apparently, an excellent description of the typical personalities of the millions of Scotch-Irish in America, but one that seems to perfectly describe the portion of my family so intent on claiming Irish ancestry…ancestry that comes only from Scots who moved to Ireland before moving to the New World.
