Norfolk County Branch Library Collection Is Now Accessible for Genealogists and Family Historians

The Ontario Genealogical Society has officially loaned the library collection of the inactive Norfolk County Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society to the Norfolk County Public Library. The collection is now held at the Simcoe Branch of the Norfolk County Public Library, 46 Colborne Street South, Simcoe, Ontario, in the Canadiana Room. The Simcoe Branch (http://www.ncpl.ca/locations/simcoe-branch/) of the Norfolk County Public Library can be contacted at 519-426-3506 extension 5.

The Norfolk County Public Library is also working on a project to digitize (http://www.ncpl.ca/about-our-digital-heritage-database/) some of this material in addition to their own local history collection. You can search the Local History Database with a simple or advanced search.

Researchers are indebted to the willing volunteers of the former Norfolk County Branch of OGS who spent the many hours making sure that all of this genealogical information would be available.
