Local Research Request

We provide a basic reference service for questions received by mail, phone, or email. We are able to search for:

  • Specific articles or obituaries found within the Peterborough Examiner. Names and dates must be supplied. 
  • Ship’s passenger lists for the Peter Robinson emigrations from Ireland in 1823 and 1825.
  • Maps in the historical atlases in our collection.

There is a minimum charge of $25.00 +HST per search. We can email you the results for free, hard copies can be mailed for $0.50/page plus postage.

Please note that we require either an exact date or a range of dates within a one-week period in order to perform the search.
