Are you related?




Details for the reunion weekend are yet to be totally finalised so a program won't be available until closer to the time.  However, a preliminary program will include:

Family trees on display with opportunity to add or update your family details

Catch up with cousins, second cousins, lost cousins, aunts and uncles, and find new relatives you never knew existed.  You might find someone you've known for ages is a relative! 

Photos etc of ancestors and history of the different branches

Photo opportunities including a group photo of your immediate family, extended family and your branch of the Sutherland tree

Have an 'all in together' photo of everyone

Enjoy the entertainment and activities

Tartan Parade - an informal dinner on Saturday 14th focusing on the Sutherland Tartan with a Scottish flavour.  The initial idea is to wear or bring something with the Sutherland Tartan from a kilt to a bow, badge, sash or scarf.  Negotiations are currently underway to see if we can import the tartan at a reduced price to sell or make things to buy.  Any tartan is very expensive to buy and overseas postage is exorbitant!  Watch the 'news' section of this site for updates on this.

Memorabilia for sale to raise funds for restoration of the graves of Robert and Grace and their 3 children, hopefully including their grandchildren (with sufficient funds).  Watch the 'news' section of this site for updates on this.

Relax in beautiful historic and quiet surroundings while you learn something new about your ancestors, are entertained and have a thoroughly enjoyable weekend.

Other entertainment and surprises not finalised or public knowledge yet (there has to be a surprise doesn't there?) - revealing previously unknown information regarding Robert and Grace's children.....


We will publish the final program as soon as it is known. Check our 'News' section for updates in the mean time.

Contact details required  Please email us at and advise us of your email or postal address so we can correspond with you and send you and your family an invitation with full details.  Any of your Sutherland relatives contact information would also be very welcome.  It is our aim to contact every descendant of Robert and Grace's so we will only be able to do that with the help of relatives like yourself. 



Please note:  Any surplus income from the Reunion will ALL be spent on grave restoration *
