Using the Archives
Accessing the Collection
There are a variety of methods in which you can obtain records from the Norfolk County Archives. The fees associated with photocopying, scanning and printing copies of archival records can be found in our Schedule of Fees (PDF document).
Photocopying can be conducted on-site in the reading room but photo reproduction will be conducted by the archivist and may take one – two weeks to complete. Please see our Photocopying Policy (PDF document) to learn more about copying records at the archives.
If you cannot visit our facility, Norfolk County Archives offers long-distance research services. Staff and volunteers can conduct research on your behalf (research fees will apply – please see ‘Schedule of Fees’ (PDF document) for our current rates).
Our resources and service mandate allow us to accept only research requests with a tangible connection to Norfolk County. However, we can guide researchers to other archival repositories where the records may be available.
