Ontario Genealogical Society - Irish Palatine Special Interest Group (IP-SIG)

"In the Footsteps of our Irish Palatine Ancestors" Bus Tour

The IP-SIG is sponsoring a tour in September 2018 called In the Footsteps of our Irish Palatine Ancestors. It is a bus tour, starting in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, going to New York, then on to the Camden Valley, Saratoga, Bennington, etc. and then back into Quebec, Canada. We are following the Irish Palatines who left Ireland in 1760, went to New York, moved to the Camden Valley, then fled to Quebec and eventually ended up in Ontario as loyalists.

The tour can be booked through Great Canadian Holidays at 1-800-461-8687, extension 280. But you better hurry, the bus is almost full!
