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.
