About Us

Established as The Ganaraska Region Archives in 1994 and renamed the Port Hope Archives in 2005, the Archives has been serving the Municipality of Port Hope for over 15 years.  Supported by dedicated volunteers and generous members, the Archives provide access to archival materials related to Port Hope’s history. An archivist is on staff to catalogue the collection and assist researchers.

 

The collection is comprised of materials donated to the Archives to preserve for the future and to be used by anyone interested in Port Hope and Hope Township’s history. Archival materials include photographs, ledgers, documents, journals and maps.

 

Researchers are welcome to visit the Archives and use the reading room to conduct research on their home, family or the local history. A reference computer is available to search the Internet, local databases and databases related to the Archives’ collection.

 

The PHA is continually building its collection of reference materials for public use, including a collection of family histories. Genealogical resources at the PHA are not limited to the Municipality of Port Hope.  The PHA owns a set of Vital Statistics Indices (birth, marriage and death) for the Province of Ontario on microfilm. A user fee charge is applicable to non-members and no cost to members of the PHA.
