Reference Library Collection

Reference Library Collection 2014 (400x360)

The North Lanark Historical Society and North Lanark Regional Museum are dedicated to making local history more accessible. Our Reference Library Collection contains local genealogies, local history books, cemetery books and historical reference material. In order to facilitate research visits and research requests we have created an inventory of the Reference Library Collection.


Here are a few of the families that we have information on:

Bellamy, Blair, Brown, Burchill, Burke, Buzzell, Byron, Caldwell, Cannon, Caswell, Clint, Cochran, Corford, Coulter, Cram, Dack, Duff, Dunlop, Eades, Gemmill, Gillan, Hobbs, Humphries, Johnstone, Lang, Leckie, Lowe, Mackay, Mattice, McArthur, McDonald, McGuire, McIlraith, McIntyre, McKay, McLean, McMasters, McNeely, McNicol, Metcalf, Milnes, Moffatt, Moore, Moorhouse, Morphy, Needham, Nettleton, Pattie, Paul, Philip, Rattray, Reid, Rintoul, Robertson, Scott, Shipman, Smith, Snedden, Steel, Stewart, Tennant, Thompson, Toshack, Wilson, Yuill.

In addition to this we have various published books on the settlement and history of communities in Lanark County and the surrounding area. We also have transcriptions of some early births, baptisms, marriages and deaths from local churches and newspapers as well as local cemetery records. Other Archival and Research material includes a large photo collection and original copies of the Almonte newspapers, for those studying regional history and genealogy.


Our Reference Library Collection inventory is available in two versions.
