Irish Palatine SIG Special Event: Irish Palatines in Ontario Tour

Date: September 5–15, 2013

The Tour committee is very pleased to announce an exciting addition to the itinerary for the “Irish Palatines in Ontario Tour” in September. The Prime Minister’s wife, Laureen (Teskey) Harper, is an Irish Palatine descendant, and has invited the tour group for tea at 24 Sussex Drive (the Prime Minister’s residence) on one of the days the group is in Ottawa. She will also lead a guided tour of Parliament Hill.

These special events are only open to full tour participants, so if you have been hesitating about signing up, now is the time to do so. You can find more information about the tour on the website of the Irish Palatine Special Interest Group of the Ontario Genealogical Society:
