Welcome New Members!

We offer you a special opportunity to learn and appreciate the history of "Old Norfolk".

Established in 1900, the Norfolk Historical Society has collected over 300 years of the area's interesting history, including artifacts, paintings, furniture, books, documents and records. We are fortunate in being able to display this collection at a magnificent restored mansion - the Eva Brook Donly Museum in Simcoe.

We also offer outstanding facilities for family history research. The Society has extensive records of old Norfolk County family genealogies, marriages, cemeteries, newspapers, land records, censuses, church records, etc. In addition, we have one of Ontario's finest collections of books and microfilms for genealogy research beyond Norfolk - for Ontario, for Canada and for early America.

Benefits of membership in the Norfolk Historical Society include free admission to the Museum; regular newsletters; Society meetings and volunteer activities; Norfolk Genealogists meetings and Computer Genealogy (GenCIG) meetings; free admission to our archives research library; notices of local history publications; invitations to special events, parties and tours.
