Touring Glengarry: Lancaster

June 28, 2012

While I write this post, I am munching on Lankaaster, aged Vieilli cheese and crackers.  I purchased it at the Glengarry Fine Cheese store north of Lancaster.  http://glengarryfinecheese.com/

Fine Cheese in Glengarry

These are the experiences that make a trip so worthwhile.  To enjoy the local products.  I would have purchased more but travel can make it difficult.  My little brick made it home and through security and to the USA.

The road in to and the sign – Lancaster

It is very flat around Lancaster.

I was going in search of the Lancaster Library.  It is actually a branch of the S.D. & G. County Libraries.

The library is situated on the main street of Lancaster. The website gives a listing of the locations of the S.D.&G. Libraries with hours and more.   http://www.sdglibrary.ca/index.cfm?Title=Hours

I just stumbled onto this today:

There is a S.D.&G. Branch in Cornwall.  It is apparently the Administrative Offices and they are on Facebook. I also found that there are a lot of Video Tutorials on You Tube for this library system. 

My goal in this library was to see what it had in genealogical sources.  I entered the library and much to my surprise I saw Penny.  She is the person I met at the Glengarry Archives.  I was very happy to see her.  We chatted happily. 

The Local History section of this library is in a little room off to the left as you enter.  It is not a very big library but it was comfortable.

 I finished up at the Lancaster Library and headed out.  here are some views of the area around Lancaster.
