Trafalgar Township Historical Society

“Recognizing, documenting, educating and celebrating the rich agricultural heritage of North Oakville,Trafalgar Township”

Resources

The Trafalgar Township Historical Society uses  a number of resources in researching the various aspects of our collective history.  We provide these on the basis to engage in an ongoing dialogue with the community to explore ways in which we could enrich the understanding of the community in which we live.

Some of the help we can offer include the following:

  • We host regularly scheduled Open Archives Days.
  • We offer speaking events to which the public is invited.
  • We can accommodate small temporary exhibitions.
  • We have a vast range of contacts with local people who have a deep knowledge of aspects of local history.
  • We provide scanning days at which the community can have scanned photos and memorabilia to capture local historical items from family archives.
  • We provide a list of local reference sources and links to historical websites.
