"An informal talk on compiling McLennan/MacLennan genealogies in Stormont and Glengarry" at the Glengarry Highland Games, Saturday, August 3, 2013,

Given that I've been working on a genealogy of the McLennan, MacLennan and McLellan lines throughout Stormont and Glengarry Counties for the past twenty years, I've been invited to do "An informal talk on compiling McLennan/MacLennan genealogies in Stormont and Glengarry" at the Clan MacLennan tent at the Glengarry Highland Games in my own hometown of Maxville, Ontario. For those who don't know, the Glengarry Highland Games are the largest highland games outside of Scotland, and our little village of eight hundred people goes up to forty or fifty thousand people over the space of a matter of days.

It's simple: we all go home.

Apparently the Clan MacLennan is the featured clan at this year's games, and will be directly across from the Clan Building. My talk will be 10am on Saturday, August 3, 2013, a fifteen-minute talk on working genealogy for various McLennan lines throughout the two (plus) counties.
