In an effort to make all family files from the Dr. H.C. Burleigh fonds available online, the files from Locator 2324 will be unavailable for research until late August. Queen's University Archives apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause for researchers, but we are excited for the opportunity to make these records available to a much wider audience.
Queen's University Archives will be closed the first two weeks of August, from the 5th to the 16th. The Archives will re-open to the public on 19 August.
Queen’s University Archives is embarking on an exciting digitization project of the genealogical family files that were donated by Dr. Herbert Clarence Burleigh. In partnership with the Internet Archive scanning centre in Toronto, the files will be scanned, mounted and made available free of charge to genealogical researchers. This project is made possible through the generous benefaction of Dr. Burleigh’s family (children and grandchildren). We foresee it being a number of years before the entire collection is made available, but files will be linked here as soon as they are completed.
Queen's Archives is honoured to be the recipient of the 2012 Kingston Historical Society Award for outstanding contribution to the preservation and interpretation of local history.
Queen's Archives is pleased to announce the launch of our new database, combining many separate portals into one interface.
The new database, located at http://db1.archives.queensu.ca/, will provide researchers with a more detailed and accurate means by which to search through our extensive holdings.
