Haldimand County Museum and Archives in Cayuga would be a very good place to look up anything on Haldimand County. There is a 7 dollar fee for non members. Our summer hours are 10 - 4:30 Monday - Friday and 12:00 - 4:30 Saturdays. If you have any questions you can e-mail me or the museum at: museum.archives@haldimandcounty.on.ca

The Haldimand Advocate dates from 1881 - 1869 (however there was the Haldimand Tribune before it which was the same paper going from 1859 - 66). This paper was for ALL of Haldimand county:

Oneida, Cayuga, Caledonia, Dunnville, Dunn, Seneca, Sims Lock, Walpole, Moulton, Nanticoke, Selkirk, Port Maitland, Decewsville, Taquanyah, Canborough etc....

The Sachem was for Caledonia and sourounding areas like Sims Lock and Oneida. It dates are from 1922 - 1979.

Surnames: Jack / Harvey
Hello,

I am researching the Jack and Harvey surnames. Edmund Harvey married Jessie Jack about 1890. Would there be some way to find out if any information regarding these families are at the museum?

Ms. French,

Unfortunately we cannot check the papers or marriage records for you. We do however have a research contract where you can contract people at the museum to do research for you. They would be able to look through the papers and marriage lisences.

Please direct all further questions to:
E-mail: museum.archives@haldimandcounty.on.ca

We do have one file on the Jack surname. It does include a reference to a "Jessie Jack" who was born in 1866 in North Cayuga twp. and was the spouse of Edmund Harvey. There is more information on Jessie's extended family. We have one file on the Harvey surname, but it does not include any information on Edmund nor Jessie...

Hope this information helps.
