September 15th, 2023 is the 250th anniversary of the landing of the Ship Hector at Pictou, Nova Scotia. Known as Canada’s Mayflower, the Ship Hector brought 189 passengers to Pictou starting a “wave” of Scottish immigration to Nova Scotia and Canada.

A genealogy and local history conference is being planned to celebrate this milestone, during the weekend of September 9 & 10, 2023. September 9th will include a full day of speakers, who will present information on local history, immigration, genealogy and much more. Sunday, Sept 10 will include a few group activities to choose from. We hope you will join us for an interesting weekend
