My local historical society is hosting NORFOLKLORE XXXIII Genealogy Fair this coming Saturday. If you could benefit from learning more about Norfolk County and surrounding area, then please stop by. I will be there taking it all in. If you cannot attend then stop back next week and I will report back to you on how I faired. All the details are posted and are available from their website http://www.norfolklore.com/
NORFOLKLORE XXXIII Genealogy Fair
Canada's oldest genealogy fair offers clues to our past
Where: Simcoe Seniors Centre and Eva Brook Donly Museum
89 Pond Street
Simcoe N3Y 2W3
When: Saturday, September 26, 2009
Attention all family historians! Norfolklore XXXIII, Canada's oldest and original genealogy fair will take place again in the town of Simcoe on Saturday September 26th between 10am and 4pm at the Simcoe Seniors Centre and the Eva Brook Donly Museum.
Organized by the Norfolk Historical Society, Norfolklore—the Grand Daddy of all genealogy fairs--is celebrating 33 years of sharing resources and information with the family historian.
More than 20 exhibitors from around Ontario will participate this year, including Ontario Genealogical Society branches from Brant, Oxford, Elgin, Haldimand, Hamilton and Niagara. United Empire Loyalists, book publishers and authors will also have booths. There will be demonstrations and displays, rare and out-of-print books for sale, and new resources for the professional and amateur family historian.
Join the thousands of people around the world who can trace their roots back through Norfolk County. Admission for this One Day Event is only $5 per person and that includes entry to both the Genealogy Fair and to the extensive archival holdings of the Eva Brook Donly Museum -- that's half price off the regular research fee!
The Simcoe Seniors Centre is located at 89 Pond Street in downtown Simcoe, just two blocks from the Museum which is found at 109 Norfolk St. S.
