1 pointYesterday I was informed of a way to research your heritage at the local library. It's basically free access to Ancestry.ca here in Canada. I'm not too sure if all libraries have this access but it's worth a shot if you want to find out a little bit about your ancestors. Be prepared to spend a fair amount of time there as once you start you may end up with many brick walls, albeit temporary. It also helps to have relatives and parents who can help you answer some questions if you don't know the info yourself. Hope this helps someone. Chrisp
1 pointJust an update. I've discovered an organization known as The Sons of Scotland that gets together in various Canadian cities for various functions and such. There's a section on their website that has listed a section on tartans. I have sent an email to see about joining and haven't heard back yet. Has anyone here any experience with them and is it a decent organization?
1 pointSo, once again the highland games will return to Houston, after a 4 or 5 year hiatus. They were supposed to come back last year, but that fell through. However this year is different, April 13th at Crown Festival Park in Sugarland, TX HHGA presents the Houston Highland Games. It will be a small festival this year with just the athletic competitions, clan tents, and a few vendors. Hoping that it will be well attended and we can grow more and more each year. So brothers, if you are reading this please make plans to come out and watch big men in kilts throw heavy things for your pleasure.
