Most of the presentations for November's ViC have been recorded so I have been able to set a draft schedule. There may be some minor adjustments to the timing, but these will really be minor.
Here's the program as it stands now:
8:30 - Gillebride MacMillan will get us started with an introductory Gaelic lesson
9:45 - Lorna Steele's presentation will give us a look at the wealth of resources available through the Highland Archive Services
11:00 - Alison Diamond will share the resources available within the Argyll Estate Papers
We will take a lunch break following Alison's Q&A
1:00 pm - Alexander Thomson will start the afternoon telling us about the Emigrants who left Cromarty and about the ships that they sailed on.
2:10 pm - Karly Kehoe will tell us about the Highland Scots who arrived in Nova Scotia.
We will take a short break after Karly's presentation.
3:30 pm - Paul Nixon will help us round out the afternoon with his presentation on Scottish Regiments.
5:05 pm - we finish up with Robert Howie of Historic Edinburgh Tours taking us on a virtual tour of Edinburgh and the sites associated with the Jacobites.
Access to the recordings of all 7 presentations will be available until January 10th. Registration is just $79cad for the day.
