This Local Families’ Index lists
the names of individuals and families for whom some information has been
collected at the Keith Boyd Museum. While many other individuals or families
have contributed to the heritage of Russell Village, the museum may not yet
have collected or catalogued information concerning them.
The Local Families’ Index
contains the names of families for whom a family file exists at the museum or
those who were profiled in Wendell M. Stanley’s 1987 publication,
From Swamp and Shanty. These
families have lived, worked or been commercially involved in the Village of
Russell or the surrounding area. Family files at the Museum vary in content;
some include genealogies and/or photographs, while others, only newspaper
clippings such as death and birth notices, or wedding articles.
Please note that heritage
information exists at the museum that has not been cross indexed, such as
sports groups, graduating classes etc., but may however provide some knowledge
of families other than those listed in this index.
Volunteers at the Keith
M. Boyd Museum will gratefully accept donated artifacts, documents or photos
of heritage value.
