Burleigh Papers – Queens University (Kathleen Ryan Hall)

Herbert Clarence Burleigh fonds, ca. 1808-1980

Includes Correspondence, alphabetical files of family research by individual family name (containing correspondence, research from printed sources, newspaper clippings and some photographs), scrapbooks and news clippings. These relate mainly to Bay of Quinte and Loyalist families. Most recent accrual includes material by Dr. Burleigh's daughter Diane MacKinnon. Also includes a set of ordnance survey maps of Kingston and area dated 1869.

When I visited Kathleen Ryan Hall Archives a couple of months ago I had the opportunity to look at quite a few of the files. I found there were files with only one sheet of paper and files with over 100. You are able to obtain photocopies of these records but you yourself cannot do the photocopying…you place an order and the staff photocopies the material. The material is organized into 14 boxes with a 1997 addition. The names included in each box are listed below.

The lists that follows will help you to organize a visit to the archives at Kathleen Ryan Hall. It may also allow you to contact the archives and request photocopies of a file if you cannot visit the archives. I do not know if the staff will photocopy mail-in requests for files but it is worth a try.
