Our volunteer archivist and staff fulfil genealogical research requests for individuals across North America.  

The Archives contain the following resources for the former Reach, Scugog, Port Perry and Cartwright townships, now all part of the Township of Scugog:

  • assessment rolls

  • personal and agricultural census
  • municipal records
  • newspapers
  • women's institute records
  • deeds, maps, municipal records and school records 

We also have genealogy files catalogued by family name, a number of detailed family trees from local families and an extensive photographic collection.  

Access to the archives is by appointment only.  Visitors may conduct their own research for a flat rate of $19.78, which includes 20 photocopies.   Research can also be done by staff at a rate of $36.16/hour.
