MORRISH TWEEDSMUIR HISTORY, by the Morrish Women's Institute
This W.I Branch is celebrating an anniversary this year 2009.  One of the projects of the branch is to get their history books copied and placed in the local library for others to see and use for research purposes.  One way they are raising funds for this project is by doing look-ups for people who have ancestors in the Morrish area.  At present the books are held by Marion Hodgson.  Further information about  the look-ups project can be obtained by phoning Marion at (905) 885-4541.
