Not a typical museum this was a great resource for those researching their family history in Norfolk County, ON.  Their archives on many families goes back the early 1800's including Loyalists and those who immigrated to this region UK and Europe.

HI all,

I agree with you DonM,

The museum people have been very helpful in helping me locate information regarding my Cole and Holt families information, the one family arriving there just after the 1812 War and the other in the early 1840s.
