This is a free and time-zone-friendly event. We show all presentations between 7 am UK time and 3 pm UK time, then we start again and show all presentations again between 3 pm and 11 pm. Schedules will be posted on www.scottishindexes.com before the event so that you can plan your day.
Shortly after 6am on Friday 25 April 1873 a special train left Kintore in the North East of Scotland with 120 people on board. More passengers joined as it passed through Aberdeenshire and Kincardineshire and headed for Glasgow and the ship that was to take them to a better life. Throughout Kincardineshire farewell signs were hung out from houses close to the railway line, and labourers in the fields paused in their work to wave to the train and wish the travellers good speed as they set off for a better life in a new Kincardineshire – in New Brunswick, Canada.
This presentation explores the conditions in Kincardineshire in the early 1870s, how the plans for the group emigration evolved, their arrival in New Brunswick, and what happened to some of the families who set off on that journey. It is likely that many other such group emigrations faced similar challenges.”
Lorraine’s presentation on ”The Scotch Colony” is at 11:15 AM Atlantic Time, this Saturday 14 January 2023. Here is the schedule for the entire second session (Times are given for Eastern Time Zone) https://www.scottishindexes.com/2023prog19EST.pdf
