This coming week is Archives Awareness Week. Supporting and promoting the museums and archives of Grey County is part of the mission of the Grey County Historical Society.
Have you visited the Grey County Archives? If you do not live close enough to visit regularly, the website includes some wonderful information that you might find useful in your genealogical or historical research of the County. It includes: digitized Women's Institutes' Tweedsmuir histories and the diaries of Mary Williams Trout. If you are planning a visit, check the finding aids. This is only a sampling of the information available.
During Archives Awareness Week, there is free admission to the Archives. If you wish to have a behind the scenes look at the Archives, the archives' staff will be giving a tour on Tuesday and Wednesday at 2:30 p.m.
Also during the coming week, there are two special events: Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. the wonder of European church buildings in the Middle Ages included in regular admission and Thursday at 2:30 p.m. a lecture on the IODE, admission by donation.
The museum also has an exhibit honouring the IODE (Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire) century of service. Check out also the virtual display.
We hope that you will take the time this week to discover what the Grey County Archives has to offer.
