Since 1989 TVA has preserved the history of families, organizations and businesses throughout the Trent Valley and especially Peterborough County.

Our 800+ archival collections include extensive holdings from the Peterborough Examiner, County Land Records, extensive research library and much more.

Research your own family, home or area of interest or have us do it for you.

For researchers or history enthusiasts a TVA membership has a number of benefits such as access to Ancestry Institution and “Member Only” events. Different membership levels are available to suit your needs. A TVA Membership also makes a thoughtful gift. (Print membership form also available.)

Trent Valley Archives

Support local history through TVA Membership
and financial donations.

Trent Valley Archives is a Registered Charity and can issue tax receipts for financial donations and historical documents such as family papers and documents from local clubs, organizations and businesses. *


Meanwhile please download our brochure (pdf), explore our website, look us up on social media, send us an email or give us a call. We look forward to meeting you.

* Large collections of letters, photos and other historical documents must be accompanied by a donation to offset the cost of archival boxes, photo sleeves and other associated expenses. We would be pleased to discuss this with you.
