The first ever Coubrough/Cowbrough Internation Family
Reunion, held in Kingston,
Ontario, Canada in August 2001, went so well that a second one followed in
April 2003, in Katikati, New Zealand, and a third last summer (August
2005), in the Coubrough/Cowbrough home territory, Stirling, Stirling,
Scotland. Sadly, many people were not able to
join us at either party, much as they may have wanted to. Luckily,
all three previous editions went so well that yet another has been planned for the
summer of 2007, in Troy, Michigan, USA. Hope you can join us for the social event of the year.
When: August 3 - 5, 2007 (Friday
Where: Troy, Michigan, USA
Exact location yet to be determined
Who: All Coubroughs, Cowbroughs,
their descendants, their ancestors, their friends, anyone who has a
Coubrough or Cowbrough anywhere in their family tree and anyone who
admits to even knowing a Coubrough. No matter how you spell your
Coubrough name, we want to meet you!
What: The plan is for three days of informal visiting, with displays of local
and family history, old photographs, family trees, etc. Don't forget
to bring your own family photos, and stories. (Please have copies made of
old photos; we don't want to risk loss or damage of your precious
originals.) The exact program has not yet been determined.
Meals will be available ("pay as you go") from an
on-site restaurant, though there is a grande finale dinner and Ceilidh
planned for the Wednesday afternoon/evening.
There is plenty of hotel and bed & breakfast accommodation
available, with party-goers responsible for their own arrangements. Have a

be approximately 125 US Dollars per person

registration fee includes the cost of renting the
facility, displays, adminstrative costs, farewell dinner, etc.
