Upcoming PEIGS Meeting

The PEI Genealogical Society's next general public meeting is in Summerside, Prince Edward Island Saturday, September 29, at the Lefurgey Cultural Centre, 205 Prince Street, off Granville Street, at 2:00 p.m. All welcome, free admission.

Includes brief business meeting and illustrated presentation by Island historian Mr Earle Lockerby speaking on "Descendants of Samuel Holland on PEI and Their Royal Connection". Mr. Lockerby will trace the family lore that has grown up concerning the family's connection to Prince Edward, Duke of Kent (after whom the Island is named), and compare the conventional wisdom with the results of historical and genealogical research.

The meeting will also receive an update from the Public Archives and Records Office, one of the most-frequented resources for Island genealogical researchers.
