Join us in welcoming, Barbara Bell and Gwyneth Evans.

Barbara Bell and Gwyneth Evans from the Vernon Museum will delve into their archives and exploring the resources available in the Vernon Museum archives. The presentation will focus on their current project that is using family records from a prominent family in Vernon's history, the Jacques, to uncover anything related to the Jacques family members and the family business. Delving into the archives will lead to some interesting discoveries, such as, how Jacques Jewelers' is connected to Queen Elizabeth II.
