Serving Bruce County Families – Past and Present
We rely on donations and our membership funds to enable us to continue with our mission to serve Bruce County Families -- past and present. We use the funds to print our newsletters, purchase microfilms for the Bruce County Archives, participate in community events, maintain our extensive clipping collection of Bruce County obituaries, marriage and birth notices, defer costs incurred in transcribing tombstone information in Bruce County cemeteries, and to offer beginner genealogical courses. We are committed to our goal of assisting researchers and visitors with their family history through our various programs.
