      The Atlantic Canada Special Interest Group will be meeting twice in the month
      of May, as follows:

      Saturday, May 3, 2003: A visit to the Phil & Barb Thorpe's Library/Archives
      from 10 until 2 pm. Phillip P. Thorpe CG(C) specializes in Kings County, Nova
      Scotia families, especially Planters; Nova Scotia Loyalists; colonial New
      England families, particularly in southeastern Connecticut; and research on
      Mayflower lineages. Don't forget to bring your lunch and pencils & paper (no
      pens allowed). Phil & Barb have created an outstanding library that contains
      many resources on the Maritimes. A highly recommended visit for anyone with
      Atlantic Canada roots! For those interested, please RSVP Lois Nicholson at
      247.3455 or by email at lfnicholson@....

      Wednesday, May 14, 2003 from 7 to 9 pm at RGO Office Products in the William
      Glen Room (directions for this venue below): This evening's topic will be on
      the Lunenburg First Families (also called the Foreign Protestants) who came
      from Montbeliard, Switzerland and Germany and settled in the Lunenburg area of
      Nova Scotia in 1753. Tonight's event will also focus on the 250th Anniversary
      celebrations taking place in Lunenburg July 10-14th, 2003 with guest speaker,
      Lyne VanHusen, providing us with an overview of this upcoming event. For
      those interested but unable to attend, please contact Inge Leavell @ 948.0543

      RGO (229-33rd Street NE) is right off Deerfoot Trail heading east on Memorial
      Drive to 28th Street NE. If you are travelling east on Memorial, stay in your
      far left lane and take your first left at 28th Street NE (you will see Swiss
      Chalet on your left). Once on 28th, take an immediate right at the China Rose
      Restaurant, drive past the TELUS buildings and RGO is the large white building
      on the left (ample parking) with lots of signage so you won't miss it.


      Our first meeting of the 2003/2004 year will be held Wednesday, September 10,
      2003 from 7 to 9 pm. (a future note will tell you the exact location and
      additional details)

      The September 10, 2003 meeting will focus on the Maritime United Empire
      Loyalists. Nancy Waters will be giving a presentation on Simon Baxter, one of
      her Loyalist ancestors. Jim Stewart, the Calgary Branch Genealogist of the
      United Empire Loyalist Association of Canada (UELAC), will be also be in
      attendence for those who would like some direction on applying for UEL status.
      We welcome anyone with Maritime Loyalist roots to attend and share your
      Loyalist ancestors! More information on this upcoming meeting in August.
