With the help of Knowledge Ontario staff and funding from the Ministry of Culture through the Southern Ontario Library Service (SOLS), Prescott-Russell public libraries have initiated a project of digitizing 19th century and early 20th century photos depicting the lives and traditions of the French speaking population of the region.
Wanted: old photographs
Under the first phase of its project to digitize images, the Library is looking for old photos (before 1950) taken in the Prescott-Russell area. If you are in possession of material that might interest us or if you know people who have old photograhs, please contact us. We do not store your photos but we will index and scan to make them available on the Internet.
