Welcome to the Oxford County Archives

We are committed to preserving Oxford County's archival heritage for future generations and making it available to the public.

What we do

The Oxford County Archives acquires, preserves, and makes accessible inactive public records created by, for, and about Oxford County.

These records include:

  • Administrative
  • Legal
  • Fiscal
  • Genealogical records
  • Historical and cultural records of Oxford County 1850 to the present, and its predecessor, the District of Brock, 1842 to 1849.

If you have some materials that you are considering donating, please contact the archivists. Staff are always interested in receiving new acquisitions, provided that the materials meet the terms of our mandate of collecting materials relating to the people, places and history of Oxford County. Archives staff facilitate and monitor public access to the archival information as prescribed by the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, 1990.

What we offer

The Oxford County Archives also endeavours to increase public awareness of the rich cultural heritage of Oxford County through the implementation of a comprehensive outreach program, including presentations, exhibits, and education programs. See the “Our Services” section for more information on the types of educational programming we currently offer.
