Celebrating Our Scottish Roots Day
The Quebec Family History Society will hold “Celebrating Our Scottish Roots Day” on Wednesday, Jan. 16, from 1:30 to 4 p.m., at the QFHS Heritage Centre and Library, 173 Cartier Ave., Pointe-Claire. This is part of a series of monthly “Roots Days,” created to bring together genealogists in a friendly setting. Admission is free. Visit http://www.qfhs.ca/events.php
Even if you don’t have a dram of Scottish blood in your veins, members and the public are invited to drop by anytime during the afternoon to chat about family history.
Share your stories, learn from others, and browse books from the QFHS Scottish collection. Meet members who travelled to Scotland to research their ancestry at major archival centres and hear about their experience.
So, bring a coffee mug, your own favourite books or memorabilia on Scotland that have helped you in your research, a friend, or just bring yourself.
