Collections and Research

Our atmospherically controlled vault contains over 170 metres of documents recording the history of Charlotte County, including letters, maps, ledgers, photographs, logbooks, certificates, yearbooks, ephemera, organizational records, artworks, diaries, deeds, and more. Search below to get an idea of our holdings, though note that improving access to our materials is an ongoing process.

Detailed finding aids for many collections can also be found via Archives CANB:

To learn more about the processes of archival research, check out this helpful guide created by the Association of American Archivists:

Our research room also holds books relating to the history of the area and relevant subjects; numerous local newspapers on microfilm, many with name indexes; researcher-contributed genealogies; vertical files of subject interest; and other research resources. Many of these are also searchable below.


Researchers are very welcome to visit, but appointments are required. Please contact us ahead of your proposed visit.

Audiovisual Collection

The Charlotte County Archives Audio Visual Collection contains video and audio files of County-wide interest, produced by the Archives, ranging from short “Charlotte County Moments” (on this website) to archival film records of 20th Century life in St Andrews and around the County. We also have videos donated by producers from across the County.

The Collection also includes 174 hours of indexed recordings of local TV programming from Channel 10 in the 1990s, digitized directly from VHS tapes at CHCOtv. These give a broad perspective on events and prominent people around Charlotte County through that decade.

The Historic Home Movies of St Andrews N.B. series includes 12 hours of amateur movies shot from 1923 to recent times, which have been digitized, processed, edited, and produced with informative voice-over commentaries recorded by current residents. Summaries of these videos are included under the Media Gallery tab on this website.

The collection also includes over five hours of audio recordings of public lectures delivered at the Court House and Anglican Church Hall and a variety of informal interviews of archival interest.

All files in the Collection are listed here and can be experienced at the Archives on request. The Home Movies series and the Charlotte County Moments can be found in the audiovisual gallery section of this website.
