About the Local History Collection

The Library owns an ever-growing historical and genealogical collection of the City, the Niagara River and Falls, and the Niagara Peninsula. The wide variety of rare material in these collections - including guidebooks, atlases, local histories, magazines, maps, photographs, art reproductions, newspapers, clippings, government reports and City Council minutes - are used extensively by staff and the public. 

These materials can be viewed at the Victoria Avenue library. Due to the rarity and nature of these materials they are not available for loan and cannot be borrowed through the InterLibrary Loan system.

Cemeteries of Niagara

Many Niagara area cemeteries have been transcribed and published. In this section we have noted exceptional or hard-to-find listings, then added the list of published cemeteries in our collection. Most cemetery records have been indexed into our local history files.
