 NZSG Scottish Interest Group
The NZSG Scottish Interest Group has a large membership.  While some are located in Scotland, Canada, and Australia, the majority are resident in New Zealand.  All of us are enthusiastic about tracing our Scottish roots.

A sub-group has ancestral ties with Nova Scotia in Canada, being descended from Scottish Highlanders who emigrated there before a second migration to New Zealand.

The NZSG Scottish Interest Group produces 4 newsletters each year which it sends to its members.
