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.

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.
