History

The St. Mary's Genealogy Research Centre at Sherbrooke Village was founded in 2011 by a group of community-based genealogists and local historians in response to the need to provide a place to collect, preserve, and share historic records and resources of the St. Mary's municipal area (the western portion of Guysborough County). It is housed upstairs in The Village Treasures Gifts Shop, just inside the gates of Historic Sherbrooke Village. Included in its holdings are genealogy and archival materials gathered and donated to Sherbrooke Village over many years.
