The Tantramar Heritage Trust's annual general meeting is coming up on Thursday, May 31. It will be held at St. Paul's Anglican Church, 125 Main Street, at 7 p.m. Paul Bogaard will speak, and we'll launch the book Yorkshire Immigration to Atlantic Canada - Papers and Proceedings of the Yorkshire 2000 Conference , edited by Paul A. Bogaard. This volume makes available for the first time all 15 papers presented at a two day conference held at Mount Allison University, Sackville NB in August 2000. The conference was part of a week-long celebration held in Sackville in honour of the more than 1000 immigrants from Yorkshire, England who settled in Atlantic Canada (most in the Chignecto Region) between 1772 and 1775. The conference brought together noted academics, genealogists, and local historians and the proceedings include an introductory essay by Dr. Bill Hamilton. This publication, along with Jim Snowdon's Footprints in the Marsh Mud (also available from the Trust) will be of great interest to all who are interested in the early settlement history of eastern Canada. It is especially relevant to an understanding of the immigration and impact of those hardy settlers from Yorkshire who were "seeking a new life" in Nova Scotia.
In addition, we will also be honouring our second annual volunteers of the year - Dr Eugene and Joanne Goodrich, who have been involved in many Trust activities over the years, and especially active in our popular annual Heritage Day breakfasts.
All members who attend are eligible to vote, and everyone (members and non-members) are invited to attend. For more information on this event, or other Trust activities phone 536-2541
