Airt: ulster origin but living in Friesland

I am of Ulster origin, but living in Friesland in the Netherlands. 
It is fascinating to see the relationship betweenScots and 
Frisian, so many common words and structures.
Frisian was once almost a dead language, only spoken by 
peasants and of very low social status. This has changed and 
there is no reason why Scots should not be the legal and 
official language in Scotland. One thing is important though, 
there must be a standard, which does not mean that dialects 
should be discriminated against and secondly it must be a 
relevant language. If Scots remains a nicetey of Scottish 
folkore then it will not work. As I said, it must be relevant at 
work and at home, in public and in private. Then it will survive 
and be a living language again. I wish this will happen.

I've been lost discovering so many new things about Scotland 
and the "Isles" in general!
I am interested to find out how diverse Scottish culture is from 
Irish, Welsh and British cultures.
Most of my ancestors hailed from Scotland, Ireland, England 
and Wales, my family on both 
sides have been in the States since the 1700's though. 

I love to listen to your dialects, I have had a "love affair" with 
accents from all over the area and your
website has been wonderful.

My father and I are planning a trip to Scotland next year, his 
side of the family can trace lineage back 
Clan Stewart. The name SOUTHARD, I have heard, has 
Scottish and/or Irish origins. Of course, 
there may be no way to know what it originally started out 
I am sending my father this website to "surf", I am sure he 
will enjoy this greatly!
