The LBM is part of the Eastern Townships Archives Portal!
The Eastern Townships Archives Portal (ETAP) database brings together archival descriptions from historical societies and archives repositories from across the Eastern Townships of Quebec. Here, you will be able to dig into the rich history of the region by searching through records such as personal letters and diaries, business records, minute books from organizations, church registers, photographs, postcards, and maps.
You can access the ETAP by clicking here: https://www.townshipsarchives.ca/brome-county-history-society?sf_culture=en
Please note, we are currently in the process of a long-term digitization project and thus, only a small portion of our archival records are available online. Contact us for more information on our vast collections.
