Throughout her history, one of Scotland’s most important exports has been her people. The talk will provide an overview of emigration from Ayrshire, along with a selection of the best stories about people from the county who set out to make their mark in the wider world. Some sought a new home in other lands, while others made their fortune and returned to their native soil as wealthy landowners and benefactors.
Research your family history with a little help from the experts
Before the talk begins and for an hour afterwards the Marr Resource Centre’s computers will be available exclusively for those wishing to find out how to trace their family history, with expert help on hand from Troon Family History Society.
