Stitt Family Genealogy Forum
You seem to have some good connections. I am looking for the Stitt (Stit) family in Ireland. My mother told me they originally came from County Clare... but that may not be so. I'll have to double-check with her. I don't have any first names yet, but I'm trying to develop a family tree. Can you tell me, is Stitt an indiginous name to Ireland, or is it an emigrant name from Scotland or England? I seem to see a great deal of Scottish references on the web page. I would be greatly interested to know... per my mom, her granny said she was Scotch-Irish. I've since learned that was a common distintion made when folks emigrated to America as there was such discrimination towards the Irish, and people would take steps to dissociate themselves from the perceived stigma.
