Our Clan Menzies Virtual Events present an opportunity to learn, collaborate and connect with all Clan Menzies members during these unprecedented times.
These Virtual events are a way forward to fulfilling our Society’s objectives – cultivate and strengthen the true Celtic ties of family, the spirit of kin and clanship and the promotion of friendly and social activity and conversations between members of our Clan.
Clan Menzies Virtual Events are created and presented by Menzies Clan Society members who are involved in archiving Clan Menzies research and history. By sharing our knowledge and research through the latest technology, we take preserving the history, traditions, and legacies of Clan Menzies to a new level.
Headed by our Website team, these Virtual Events utilise our Youtube channel, our social media platforms and online video communication platforms such as Zoom. We aim to present opportunities to explore stories of Clan Menzies passed down over the centuries and to stay in touch with the worldwide community of the Menzies Clan Society.
By attending one of the free events in this series, you help support our ongoing effort to bring new and engaging information from the family archives and research of Clan Menzies, Menzies Clan Society and Castle Menzies. If you miss a live presentation, watch recordings of webinars and video series anytime on our Clan Menzies YouTube channel.

‘A Discovery of Archibald Menzies by Graeme Menzies’
Everyone welcome to join this FREE event.
Date- November 21st 2020
Using rarely seen images and revealing little-known facts, Graeme Menzies of Vancouver presents an overview of his discovery of Archibald Menzies.
Amazed to discover the Vancouver, Canada, bust of Archibald Menzies was the only one in the world, Graeme Menzies spent uncounted hours researching the personal story and background of one of the eighteenth centuries most brilliant – and most overlooked – botanists.
In this illustrated presentation, Graeme Menzies reveals the little-known and startling backstory of the Scottish gardener who navigated the halls of power as skillfully as George Vancouver charted the west coast of North America.
Graeme will identify some remaining mysteries yet to be solved, and challenge you to help tell the rest of the Archibald Menzies story.
