Happy St. Patrick’s Week!


If you are visiting us because you met or saw us at the CelticFest Vancouver Parade today, or because you are thinking about your Celtic relatives this week, welcome!

Perhaps they were from Ireland or Scotland? We do have resources here that can help you in researching these families, and we have many resources for family history research around the world. We have recommended family history web links, and meeting groups for both Irish and Scottish research, for example.
