This week on Ask A Historian, Matthew welcomes Justine Lyn, Resource Centre Assistant, and Melissa Toste, Collections Assistant, as they discuss the necessity for preserving historic collections at Heritage Mississauga and the future of on-line exhibits.

Melissa and Justine are currently at work photographing, cataloguing, and researching many historic items that will soon be available for our followers to explore on-line!

We encourage you to send in your questions about the people, places, events, and landmarks that are a part of the history of Mississauga to [email protected].

You are invited to email us questions you have about Mississauga and we encourage you to send a short (less than 1 minute) MP4 video of your question, which we may feature in one of our “Ask a Historian” videos.

Any questions not featured in our videos will receive a written response from Matthew.

We would also love to feature questions from young Mississauga residents who are curious about their city and will feature a dedicated video to these inquisitive kids.
