Off to Stirling on Friday!

This weekend, I am going to Stirling (a village a few kms north of Trenton) for a Genealogy Fair.

Friday, we are taking the 4-hour trip down there from Ottawa on Rte 7, and will go through the towns of Carleton Place, Perth, and then turn off at Madoc. We will continue down Rte 62 to the town of Belleville, and then on to Trenton, where we will stay for the weekend.

We will attend the Stirling-Rawdon Genealogy Fair on Saturday, then go to Campbellford Saturday evening, where I'm going to take photos for a fellow genealogist whose grandfather came from Scotland and was there in 1911.

Sunday, we will come back to Ottawa on Rte 2 and will stop in at Kingston, Gananoque, and Brockville - and then arrive back home Sunday evening.

Carleton Place and Perth are located in Lanark County, and you will find Church Records, Land and Property Records, Pioneer Families, and Township Records in <>.

Madoc, Belleville, and Trenton are covered by the Bay of Quinte GenWeb Project <>, and the project manager is Concette Phillipps.

She has put together quite a collection of papers for you to wander through - the Quakers of Prince Edward County, Pioneers of Price Edward County, the 1798 Hallowell Township Assessment Roll, and the Prince Edward Historical Atlas - to name but a few.

So I will be back with news about the Stirling-Rawdon Genealogical Fair next week.

BTW, there are two pages of links on the site from "Irish Talks", John Grenham's recent lecture in Ottawa.

They make a great companion piece to go along with the notes that were being scribbled madly during his talks!
