This database contains a history of the ancient province of Ross, the county palatine of Scotland. Ross is located in northern Scotland and is a county that has touched the national life at many important points throughout Scottish history. It has helped Scotland develop and grow into the country it is today. Therefore, this work covers more of the larger aspects of the county's history rather than minor matters such as petty Clan Skirmishes (p. vi).
Historical works contain valuable information that can be a great addition to your genealogical research. Although historical works will generally not mention your ancestors specifically, they do provide information on the time and place in which your ancestors lived, which will help you place your ancestors in a historical context.
