Introduction: By email of 28 Dec 2005, Christine Hadden has provided a partial transcription from the 1920 US census containing Prentices who were b. in Scotland and their families. Other Scotland immigrants can be found in individual articles already included in individual articles in this, and earlier, issues. Where additional information is available, we have augmented that information with references to other article and/or other information sources.
