CLAN MENZIES VIRTUAL EVENTS

Our Zoominar and Youtube virtual series present an opportunity to learn, collaborate and connect with all Clan Menzies members during these unprecedented modern times.

These events are a way forward to fulfilling our Society’s objectives - cultivate and strengthen the true Celtic ties of family, the spirit of kin and clanship and the promotion of friendly and social intercourse between members of the clan.

Clan Menzies Virtual Events are presented by Menzies Clan Society members who are involved in archiving Clan Menzies research and history. By sharing our knowledge and research through the latest technology, we take preserving the history, traditions, arts and legacies of Clan Menzies to a new level.

The Clan Menzies zoominars present opportunities to explore stories of Clan Menzies passed down over the centuries and stay in touch with the worldwide community of the Menzies Clan Society.

By attending one of the free events in this series, you help support our ongoing effort to bring new and engaging information from the family archives and research of Clan Menzies, Menzies Clan Society and Castle Menzies. If you miss a live presentation, watch recordings of the zoominars and videos anytime on our YouTube channel. www.youtube.com/clanmenzies

Date- November 21st 2020 Times- North America-12pm (PST) & 3pm (EST), UK- 8pm (GMT) Aus +9 & NZ +12 hours.

‘Using rarely seen images and revealing little-known facts, Graeme Menzies presents an overview of his discovery of Archibald Menzies.

Amazed to discover the Vancouver, Canada, bust of Archibald Menzies was the only one in the world, Graeme Menzies spent uncounted hours researching the personal story and background of one of the eighteenth centuries most brilliant - and most overlooked - botanists.

In this illustrated presentation, Graeme Menzies reveals the little-known and startling backstory of the Scottish gardener who navigated the halls of power as skillfully as George Vancouver charted the west coast of North America.

Graeme will identify some remaining mysteries yet to be solved, and challenge you to help tell the rest of the Archibald Menzies story.’

A Recording of this Event will be available to watch on the Clan Menzies Youtube Channel soon.
