Highland and Island Emigration Society

Very useful site cataloguing ships and souls who left Scotland for Australia:


Includes a history of the HIES, too.

Also: University of Aberdeen Scottish emigration Database: http://www.abdn.ac.uk/emigration/index.html

And: Hebridean Scots in Quebec:  http://hebridscots.com/contents.htm

Update: Searchable Database of HIES emigrants: http://www.scan.org.uk/_emigration/em_advanced.asp
