The Township of Douro-Dummer Archives is a small, local repository for historical records pertaining to the former townships of Douro and Dummer, which amalgamated in 1998 to become the Township of Douro-Dummer.
The records held in the Archives pertain intermittently to the years from 1830 to 1975. The Archives is located in the walk-in vault at the Douro-Dummer Public Library, 435 Douro Fourth Line, in the Hamlet of Douro. Access to the Archives is arranged through the Township of Douro-Dummer Historical Committee. When requested by a visitor, Library or Township staff will notify a Committee representative, who will provide access to the Archives at a mutually convenient time.
Some materials housed in the Archives may be restricted under Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. All Copyright for the materials held in the archive is held by the creator. Restrictions on reproduction depend on the fragility of the materials and any possible donor agreement. If you wish to publish any of the material in the Archive, please contact the Township of Douro-Dummer Clerk at the municipal office.
We have been collecting photos and information about men and women from Douro-Dummer who served either overseas or in Canada during World War One or World War Two. This is an ongoing project. Although we have information about many of our veterans, there is much more to collect. Pictures are even more difficult to find, especially from WWI. We thank those who have shared their photos and information with us and hope to collect more. We are looking for pictures, stories, newspaper clippings and diaries, etc. If you can add to our collection please email us.
