Author special guest at Nov. 17 meeting of P.E.I. Genealogical Society


The Prince Edward Island Genealogical Society is holding a public meeting on Nov. 17, 2-4 p.m., at Beaconsfield’s Carriage House.

The guest speaker will be Hillard MacKinnon, who will speak on the two books that he has published: “Donald McPhee of Brae, P.E.I., and His Descendants” and “Richard Garrett of Fairfield, P.E.I., and His Descendants 1835-2014”.

This will be a great chance to hear about family connections separated by Island geography with West Prince on one hand and Eastern Kings on the other. The meeting is also an opportunity to network with others and support genealogy and heritage by considering a membership in the society.

All are welcome. Admission is free, and refreshments will be available.

Beaconsfield’s Carriage House is located on the corner of Kent and West streets in Charlottetown. For information, contact, call 902-675-4791 or check out the society’s News & Events on its webpage at
