Searching for St. Catharines in the Archives – May 27, 2021 meeting

On March 27, the Historical Society had the pleasure of hosting David Sharron’s, head of the Archives & Special Collections department at Brock University, illustrated talk entitled, “Searching for St. Catharines in the Archives.” Archival records are everywhere. Finding them is the challenge.

Using the Shickluna Shipyard as an example, David displayed the varied records related to St. Catharines available in the Brock Archives and gave hints how to find such materials when conducting research.

Here is the recording of the presentation:
