Research Assistance - Plan B

census.gifUnder this plan we do the digging for you.


Plan B assumes you know the name of an ancestor who once lived in Norfolk County and approximately when they lived here. Trained researchers will search records in the Society's Archives (genealogical records, land abstracts, property ownership and more) seeking the information you request.

However, please give us as much data as possible and try to provide specific dates. The more information and clues you are able to provide, the more productive our efforts will be.
