Norfolklore XXXIV

Attention Family Historians! NORFOLKLORE XXXIV, Canada's oldest and original genealogy fair will take place again in Simcoe on Saturday September 25th between 10am and 4pm at the Simcoe Seniors Centre and the Eva Brook Donly Museum & Archives.

Organized by the Norfolk Historical Society, NORFOLKLORE –the Grand Daddy of all Genealogy Fairs-- is celebrating 34 years of sharing resources and information with the family historian.

Some 20 exhibitors from around Ontario will participate this year, including Ontario Genealogical Society branches from Kent, Oxford, Elgin, Haldimand, Hamilton and Niagara. United Empire Loyalists, book publishers and authors will also have booths. There will be demonstrations and displays, rare and out-of-print books for sale, and new resources for the professional and amateur family historian.

Admission for this One Day Event is only $5 per person and that includes entry to both the Genealogy Fair and to the extensive archival holdings of the Eva Brook Donly Museum & Archives -- that's half price off the regular research fee!

The Simcoe Seniors Centre is located at 89 Pond Street in downtown Simcoe, just two blocks from the Museum which is found at 109 Norfolk St. S. For more information visit or call 519-426-1583.
