OUR LIBRARY AND RESEARCH TOOLS

THE JOHN TYACKE LIBRARY

Over the years, the TCA has compiled an extensive collection of publications, videos, music and articles about Cornish topics and genealogical research.

The prime collector of these items was John Tyacke, the founder of the TCA in its current phase. Contributions from others were always welcome. These items are made available to TCA members and other researchers free of charge.

Recently, the bulk of this collection was donated to the Kelly Library of St Michael’s College within the University of Toronto. Now, to search this collection, just click on the link: https://goo.gl/Hw69MX An alphabetical listing will emerge, which can then be scrolled or sorted using the topics under the “Refine your search” menu.

While the books cannot be removed from the library without a reader’s ticket, there is a very comfortable study room available at the Library, located at 113 St Joseph Street, just adjacent to Queen’s Park, Toronto.

A number of the items from our collection were not needed by St Michael’s College, so they have been collected in what is known as the TCA Library-in-a-box. All TCA members have access to this collection.
