Victoria Cross Archive

BIFHSGO member and chair of OGS Quinte Branch, Terry Buttler, emailed to let me know about the Victoria Cross Archive, The Facts Behind the Men, Behind the Medals. 

Compiled by UK historian Tom Johnson it contains 1,356 books, “some very small and others very large.”

Terry tells me the only location where this collection exists in the world is in Canada at the Marilyn Adams Genealogical Research Centre and the Seventh Town Historical Society in Ameliasburgh, Prince Edward County.

It's one of the places highlighted in 10 Places to Get a Taste of County History by the Prince Edward County tourist folks, that that doesn't include the not to be missed wineries!

Thanks for the tip Terry. I always appreciate receiving information on this type of little known collection.
