Erin Township Records Project
RHGS maintains the Erin Township Records. This is a database of early Erin Township accounts that are available on microfiche and is searched by surname.
Local History Search
There are more than 10,000 historic images, newspaper, historic documents and oral histories that are available in a search through the library catalogue. Click here to view a flyer explaining how to use the “Local History Search”.
Due to the fragile and/or rare nature of our local yearbook collection, there is a special procedure to access these materials. Click here for the use procedure and a current listing of available yearbooks to view in the library.
