Ties over the Atlantic

For those of you who haven’t seen the creatively designed poster by Katie Anne which she made for this coming Monday’s Ties Over the Atlantic event, keep your eyes peeled for it over the weekend!

The event will be chaired by Councillor Kenneth Maciver and will be an opportunity to hear stories from those living on the Island who have ties with the city of Detroit. There will also be a short talk by local genealogist Bill Lawson about emigration from the Islands. The records held in Stornoway Library from the Lewis Society of Detroit will also be on display for viewing.

The event is being held by Tasglann nan Eilean Siar and a warm welcome goes out to everyone who would like to attend. The event starts at 7.30pm in the Council Chambers on Sandwick Road.
