Canadian Scots: Consider heading home!
"There's none more Scots than the Scots abroad/There's a place in our hearts for the old sod" is a familiar phrase for fans of the Canadian band, Spirit of the West, and their song,"The Old Sod." What does this lyric have to do with genealogy? Scots are being called home for the largest Gathering of the Clans the world has ever seen during the biggest Highland Games ever organized in Scotland this summer in honour of the 250th birthday of Scotland's own Robert Burns. July 25 and 26 are the dates to plan to attend such an event, and you can learn more about the Gathering of the Clans and the Highland Games by clicking here.
