The Historical Society greatly appreciates the donation of historical documents, books, photographs, and family histories. Copies of original documents are also appreciated (assuming no infringements). We have copying and digital scanning equipment available and would be appreciative of local historical documents that can be provided.

Gifts-in-kind are accepted with the understanding that their ownership is transferred to the Historical Society. We reserve the right to use these items and determine the retention and disposition of all such gifts.

Donated items that have financial value will be appraised and a tax receipt will be issued in accordance with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) regulations and guidelines, and Historical Society policies and procedures.
