Burleigh Files Available Online

Queen’s University Archives is very pleased to announce the public launch of our latest digital initiative, the digitization of the Dr. Herbert Clarence Burleigh fonds (Locator #2324). Through the Burleigh Family, and in particular, Peter and Evelyn Burleigh, whose generous donation has made this exciting initiative a reality, and in collaboration with Internet Archive of Toronto, the research amassed by Dr. Burleigh on approximately 1,000 families, who have roots in the Kingston region, is now available on-line. Through our Genealogy page, researchers will be able to access an alphabetical list of individual family names, whose live link will then reveal as many as 800 pages per folder containing information relating to both family members and the area in which they resided. It is hoped too, and if funding allows, that we will be able to continue this extremely worthy project in the future.
