Dig to the roots of your family tree.

Research Our Heritage

Lawrence Hill spent a lot of time in Shelburne, researching for his award winning novel The Book of Negroes.


Whether you're writing a book or researching your family tree, Shelburne offers many research resources, including the Museum's own Resource Centre.


You may also want to consult the Shelburne County Archives and Genealogical Society, a short walk from Shelburne's Heritage District, or the Black Loyalist Heritage Society in nearby Birchtown.
