What You Can See & Do Here
Are you interested in genealogy or local history but don't know where to start? The Archives has created online Research Guides to help new genealogists and local historians.
We have thousands of files organized by family surname in our collection. Files may contain family trees, family group sheets, letters, wills, and newspaper clippings.
We actively collect newspapers from our community. They are accessible on microfilm in our reading room and the most recent issues are in paper form in our storage vault.
Land records document the owner of a particular piece of land and can be useful when tracking ancestors or understanding how a neighbourhood was formed.
We have cemetery transcriptions from cemeteries in Lambton, Kent, Middlesex, and Huron Counties.
