Scottish Workshop

Registration is now open for Scotland and its People, a full-day workshop on Saturday 12 April 2014 devoted to the lives and times of our Scottish ancestors – those who stayed at home and those who migrated to Canada.

The workshop will be led by two principal speakers: UK-based genealogist Sheena Tait, who specializes in Scottish research, and historian Kevin James, a faculty member in the Scottish Studies Program at the University of Guelph. Krista Barclay, Christine Woodcock, and three of our own Toronto Branch experts – Marian Press, Linda Reid and James F.S. Thomson – will also bring their knowledge and enthusiasm to the day’s program. Join us for presentations on a range of topics: Scottish history, patterns of migration, records and repositories, planning your research both here and in Scotland, and adding “flesh to the bones” of your Scottish ancestors.

Scotland and its People is co-sponsored by Toronto Branch and the Canadiana Department of North York Central Library, and will be held in the Library’s Auditorium. Early-bird rates apply until 15 March and members of the Ontario Genealogical Society enjoy a further discount on the workshop fee. For additional details and to register on-line, click here. Be sure to sign up early to ensure a spot!
