Maryhill is a unique small village in Southern Ontario, Canada. Many of the residents are descendants from a dozen European families that settled here in the early 1800s from Alsace and Baden. In particular large numbers of immigrants came from Soufflenheim north of Strasbourg, Alsace between 1828 and 1860. It is not uncommon for 4 or 5 generations of family to have lived on the same farm, passing it down from generation to generation. The village is rich with culture and heritage. Our Society is dedicated to the preservation of the unique heritage of the village of Maryhill , Ontario, Canada and the St. Boniface Catholic Church.
The Society’s archival collections include local family histories, census returns for Waterloo Township and for St. Boniface Church, naturalization records, Tweedsmuir histories, land records, church histories and cemetery transcripts. We also have family histories donated by descendants of our founders.
