This classic reference provides fascinating biographical and geographical details for anyone interested in Scottish names. The Surnames of Scotland is an invaluable source of information especially for historians, in addition to genealogists and families interested in their Scottish ancestry.

Dr. George Fraser Black (1866-1948), a noted bibliographer and historical scholar on the staff of the New York Public Library from 1896 to 1931, spent almost half a century on the research of this volume. Miss Mary Elder Black, who assisted her father in the preparation of the main text, supplied the amendments and additions included as an appendix.
