About the Author

My name is Dan Kehoe. I was born and raised in Bancroft Ontario. I consider myself an amateur family history researcher (genealogist) . I have always been interested in history especially local history. I am fortunate enough to be in possession of a great deal of photos and articles and continue to collect more each day. I have spent most of my career in the information technology field so I am able to use digital technology to assist me. I love looking at old photos, post cards and news articles. I am eager to provide a forum for everyone to share their own collection of historical items.


Why this site ?

The Bancroft and Area History website is a place to explore the rich history of Bancroft, Ontario and surrounding communities. It's a history site, it's a heritage site, it's a family history information site. The site was created to supplement the very popular Facebook page by the same name.


My Mission

To provide a forum where we can share, preserve and celebrate our heritage. Engage people in conversation and provide a historical perspective for our youth.
