Every Object Has a Story

The objects on display are more than simple things with describing place cards. Each object tells a story about a family's history, inviting visitors to reflect on their own family mementos. Expect to see a range of displays, including military items, old fashioned toys, historic photos and documents, musical instruments and unique handmade belongings.

There are seven themes in the exhibit, which is a collaboration between the Surrey Family History CentreThe BC Genealogical Society and Surrey Libraries—Family History. View a printable information sheet about all three.
