I have family history in Guelph, so my Mother and I made a special trip to the museum in search of pictures or information about her Grandfather, my Great Grandfather.
Decades ago, my Mother remembered seeing pictures of him in the museum displays. But since then, the museum changed locations, and changed displays. So he was no longer in the exhibits.
But as we were about to leave, I noticed the locked "Archives" room, which had staff inside. We inquired about my Great Grandfather, and an employee looked him up in their computer. Sure enough, she found two images of him and his buisness. She also looked through the old city maps, and found the site in the city where his business was located.
We found out that we could have looked up his images through their website, but I don't think I would ever have known without the museum visit. Apparently they are also able to, for a fee, print you a photo from their archives since their images are high resolution.
So this is the reason for my excellent rating.
Thank you, GCM, for helping us find Alex A. Watt - Coal, Coke & Wood
