Greater Sudbury Museums has been posting a new online resource every week on their Facebook page. Some recent highlights include:
The Greater Sudbury Museums had an awesome display by the Sudbury Finnish Language School to show off during the March Break at the Anderson Farm Museum, Lively, but we didn't get a chance to share it in person. The Museum has photographed the objects to share with you all in an online album, which also contains information compiled by both organizations.
You will find digital issues of the Inco Triangle, a publication created for Inco’s employees from 1936 to 1998. This publication, of course, contains articles about mining over the years but also has many stories and photographs about community events, Inco employees, and their families.
All issues are fully searchable! Search the database for a person’s name or other specific keyword, or browse the issues by date.
This is the story of two Finnish immigrants who arrived in Canada over a century ago, whose grit and good business sense allowed them to achieve dramatic success. It is also the story of how the Anderson homestead was given new life in order to preserve local history and act as a community gathering place.
The Greater Sudbury Memories project is a series of video interviews accompanied by historical photographs. So far there are over 20 with more to come! The interviews are all with local residents with a huge variety of backgrounds and stories to share. Topics range from the Second World War to the Big Nickel to rural agricultural life in the area to stories about the downtown nearly 100 years ago!
The goal of the project is to capture and preserve stories large and small, that reflect the diverse nature of Greater Sudbury’s communities, culture, and history highlighting influences and events of individuals, local organizations, business and industries that have shaped the city of Greater Sudbury and its people.
You will find all issues of IN Touch, a quarterly publication by Inco Ltd. for Sudbury Inco retirees. The publication features interviews with retired employees, celebrations of their milestones (ie. 50th wedding anniversaries) and many other images and stories of interest to pensioners.
This is an online exhibition which tells the story of the former town of Copper Cliff, focusing on the First and Second World Wars. It features a number of photographs from our museum, library local history, and community member collections.
NORMHC will be launching a new website soon. Stay tuned via their Facebook page for their upcoming announcement as well as some cool content and shares as well.
