The Society’s AGM will be held on Wednesday, 20th May, 2015 at 7:15 pm in the University of Abertay, Bell Street, Dundee. One of the items of business is the election of office bearers and Council members. To download the notice of the vacancies to be filled click here, and for the agenda click here.
As usual, the meeting will be followed by a talk. The speaker this year is our own Angus Gellatly and the title of his talk is Metagama, Canadian Pacific Line. Launched in 1914 at the Barclay, Curle & Co shipyard on the Clyde the Metagama first crossed the Atlantic in 1915. She carried many emigrants from Scotland to Canada in the 1920s. After 151 North Atlantic roundtrips she was laid up in 1930 and scrapped in 1934. It promises to be most interesting.

We now have a connection to the internet.
8 December 2014
For some days, the Society has had a problem with our Service Provider and the Research Centre has had no connection with the Internet, despite every effort by Members of Council. We hope this problem will be fixed soon and when it is, a notice will be posted here. If you plan to come in to do research which requires access to the Internet, please check on the Website or phone the Centre.
The website is not affected and the Webmaster can access the site and emails from home, though it may take longer than usual to respond to them.
A related problem has prevented our Membership team from processing registrations and renewals. Our apologies go to new members who have not received their membership number and details.
Christmas / New year break.
The Centre will be closed for the festive season from 12 noon on Saturday 20th December 2014 until 10 am on Monday 5th January 2015.
