JOIN US: BECOME A MEMBER
If you are interested in the history of North Carolina, especially the areas of Scottish settlement; if you are interested in genealogy; if you are researching your Scottish ancestors; or would like to meet your kinfolk who are of highland Scottish descent, you should become a member of The North Carolina Scottish Heritage Society.
For your membership dues, you will receive three issues of The Argyll Colony Plus each year. You will read in The Argyll Colony Plus about the historical and genealogical research and other projects being performed by your kith and kin. You may submit genealogical queries which will be published at no charge as space allows in the next available issue. You are encouraged to submit your genealogical research publication. A data base of ancestors and family names is being developed to assist members in connecting families and making connection with relatives.
Members are informed about and invited to the North Carolina Scottish Heritage Symposium in March of each year. The NCSHS collaborates with St. Andrews Presbyterian College in Laurinburg, NC to hold an annual symposium related to Scottish heritage. There are speakers from the U. S. and from Scotland for this three-day event. Their topics vary from genealogy to other historically related subjects. This is a wonderful weekend of learning, sharing information, and fellowship.
The Scottish Heritage Center at St. Andrews College is the venue for this symposium. The Center contains many fine artifacts and a growing library of historical materials pertaining to the area and its families.
In addition, you will be notified about many other events and new publications which will be of interest and which will be available to members.
Annual dues are $30.00. Checks should be made payable to NCSHS. Please send the following information along with your dues:
