Norfolklore 2002, the Norfolk Historical Society's 26th annual genealogy fair, promises to be bigger than ever in new location.  

If you take in only one Norfolk Genealogy event all year, Norfolklore is the one not to miss!

Admission: $5 -- includes admission to both the school (exhibits and sales) and NHS Archives at the Eva Brook Donly Museum.

As the snapshots on the left from past years illustrate, Norfolklore attracts dozens of genealogical resource providers/exhibitors and hundreds of genealogists researching their Upper Canada/Ontario roots.

Out-of-print books, hard to find books, maps, genealogy software and databases for your PC, historical transcriptions too numerous to list, and much, much more will all be available.

Come meet the experts from all over southwestern Ontario. This is the one annual event where they all come together in the same place at the same time.
