This year we are commemorating the Scottish people who settled in Aldborough Township (now West Elgin) in and before 1819. Some arrived on the ships the Hope and Harmony in 1819, some in 1818 on the Mars and others before came from New York State. Some then moved on to Dunwich Township and surrounding areas.
On June 22-23, 2019 at the Landing of the Settlers living history event we hope you will join us to celebrate these people and their contributions to our community. As a descendant we are hoping you can provide us with genealogy and family history before the event.
