We do want to hear from you!
It is our desire to create and maintain a page of links to other Heritage and Historical Societies in the greater Hamilton area. Gradually we hope to expand this into a more comprehensive list of links to web sites related to local historical sites, historical museums and sites of general heritage interest. Comments, corrections and suggestions concerning this material should be directed to The Webmaster.**********
