Middlesex Centre Archives thanks Library and Archives Canada for the Documentary Communities Heritage Program Grant of $28,500.

The Middlesex Centre Archives (MCA) is pleased to announce receipt of a $28,500 grant through the
Library and Archives Canada’s Documentary Communities Heritage Program (DHCP). This grant will
support the professional repair, cleaning and digitisation of early records and photographs from the
businesses, industry and personal records of the Society of Friends (Quakers) and the Marsh Store
(1862-1955). The original fragile records will be preserved meeting archival standards, and the digitised
records will become accessible to the public. MCA is one of 11 recipients in Ontario under this year’s
DCHP grants.

Have you been cleaning and sorting your files? Do you have old photos, books, documents, organisations’ secretary/treasurer books, posters, letters, books, family histories etc. from Middlesex Centre? Before you throw them in the recycling bin or dumpster, consider donating them to the Middlesex Centre Archives. We will save those precious articles for you and future generations to study, research and learn about our past. We hope to re-open on September 9th or when it is deemed safe to do so. We will let you know!

Call to Action

We are experiencing history. This has never happened in our lifetime. We do hope you are keeping records because in 50 to 100 years, our descendants will be researching in archives to discover how their ancestors (that’s you) survived Covid-19. Once Middlesex Centre Archives is open to the public, we would love copies of those memoirs – diaries, photos and/or videos.
