Naval Marine Archives and Canadian Society of Marine Artists in Picton, Ontario
The Victory is home to the Naval Marine Archives and Canadian Society of Marine Artists in beautiful Picton, Ontario. They were formerly the Archives and Collections Society.
The facilities are open to all researchers, though there are a few advantages to becoming a member if this type of research falls within your family history: 1. You support a federally incorporated charity and 2. Members not able to visit the archives in person will receive some research assistance for free.
What will you find? Everything from books on naval marine topics and related local information, ships and shipping, yachts and yachting as well as access to Members' Pages (with paid membership.) An overall description of their holdings is available on their site, and be sure to check their online catalogue for more!
