Generations ago, there were villages throughout Niagara that held much promise for the future. They had general stores, schools, churches, mills and more. Fast forward 100 years and some of these villages are not even on a modern day map. Perhaps merely a footnote in a history book. What happened to these villages? Why did they disappear? And what evidence is left of their existence?
Join the St. Catharines Historical Society on April 24 at 7:30 in the St. Catharines Museum to hear Society President John Burtniak reveal the fate of these villages of yesteryear.

As I descend from the Jacob Brookfields of early Upper Canada, I am interested in any information that may pertain to my family. Any direction in this pursuit would be greatly appreciated… any pictures, stories, stamps etc.
