This is the story of the early Scottish community in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania: how migrants found their way to the GDL, how they established settlements in the town of Kėdainiai and elsewhere, and how they went about their working and social lives. It examines their strategies for survival and also their eventual disappearance after the 1750s. A special effort was made to gather material from previously unexploited archival sources in Lithuania, Poland, and Germany to create profiles of members of the Scottish community and their family relationships. In all, 1,100 individuals of Scottish descent have been identified living in the GDL from 1630 to 1750.
