- Please visit the Hamilton Spectator - Birth, Deaths and Marriages section of this website. A major update has occurred and a great resource for research thanks to
the efforts of Donna Evans and Gloria Tong
- There's tentative good news on the future of SS # 6 Glanford (Hannon) school. There's negotiations in the works on the relocation of the original 1870's school to a site on the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Area, off Harrison Road, Binbrook. Nothing has been finalized but all parties (NPCA, IBEW, City of Hamilton) are looking into this possibility and the feeling that we have received is a positive one. More later as the plan progresses.
- Note - the Meeting for October 16, 2017 has been cancelled. Next Meeting Date is Monday, November 20, 7:30 PM at the Glanbrook Municipal Service Centre, 4280 Binbrook Road.

About The Glanbrook Heritage Society
To simplify local historical interests, one group was needed to collect, maintain and preserve the creation and history of the former Townships of Binbrook and Glanford. These were amalgamated to form the Township of Glanbrook in the Regional Municipality of Hamilton Wentworth in 1974. The Glanbrook Heritage Society is the name change ratified by the Glanford Historical Society (established as a registered non-profit organization in 1984)for use with the merger of the Binbrook Historical Society (est.in 1975), the Maggie Johnson Heritage Foundation (est. 1985) and the Glanford Historical Society.
Since the disappearance of Binbrook, Glanford and most recently Glanbrook more and more information vanishes forever as papers and pictures are destroyed and the older generations pass away along with their knowlege. To minimize the loss of this information the former societies have undertaken the task of collecting the history of the townships to be presented in the public in book form. This has been done to a certain extent with the publication of four books by the two historical societies.
