BIFHSGO January meeting

10:00 a.m., 9 January 2010, at Library & Archives Canada, 395 Wellington Street

"Murder Most Foul - The Complete Story" by Robert Brown

Using old newspaper reports and other sources Robert Brown will reconstruct the murder he discovered of his cousin, Michael "Mickey" Brown. He will describe the murder, the investigation, the manhunt, capture and trial of the murderer, and the eventual carrying out of the sentence passed upon him in a duly-constituted Scottish court. It may not be as exciting as an episode of CSI or NCIS, but it has lots of twists and turns. This talk will honour the 101st anniversary of the murder in Fife; a murder so foul that it captivated the attention of the people in Fife, Perth, and the Lothians for at least a year.


"Before BIFHSGO" education talk (at 9:00 a.m.):

"Display it and Save it: Presenting and Preserving your Family Documents" presented by Kyla Ubbink
