From Kelso to Kalamazoo

Our next talk is on Sunday, 27 November 2011, at the Corn Exchange, Market Square, Melrose, TD6 9PN. See this map for directions.

At the meeting, Margaret Jeary will tell us about George Taylor, who around the age of 50 left a successful career as a horticulturalist in Kelso to start a new bedding plant business in Kalamazoo (once known as Celery City), Michigan, USA.

He seems to have been a colourful character and he married 4 times.

There's a bit more about him in this description of Margaret Jeary's book, From Kelso to Kalamazoo, but come and hear a lot more on Sunday.

The doors will be open at 2pm, with the talk starting at 2.30pm.

We warmly invite you to attend the talk whether you are a member or not.
There is no admission charge.
We'll have a range of family history publications available to buy.
Refreshments available after the talk (donation appreciated).
If you have a problem with your family history, please discuss it (no charge) with one of our volunteers.
