The Family Tree is the
award-winning publication of The Ellen Payne Odom Genealogy Library
in Moultrie. It is the largest genealogical publication in the
world and, at the same time, it is the largest Scottish publication
in the world outside Scotland.
Next September, an event is
planned that will significantly assist the publication financially
and provide an opportunity for friends to enjoy a week aboard a
brand new Carnival Cruise Line ship!
Representatives from Carnival
Cruises came to Moultrie to present the idea of a cruise from New
York to "New Scotland" (Nova Scotia, Canada) next September 18-25.
Not only will the participants
enjoy visiting Boston, Massachusetts and Portland, Maine in the
United States; they will visit Sydney and Halifax Nova Scotia!
Special events are being planned in the Canadian ports as well.
The cruise will feature
presentations and talks by The Family Tree editor-in-chief, Beth
Gay; presentations by author and talk show host, Ludlow Porch;
entertainment and presentations by premier Scottish entertainer,
Colin Grant-Adams; presentations by Alastair McIntyre from
electricscotland.com and talks on both interesting Scottish books
and the Scottish poet, Robert Burns by Frank Shaw.
