* [back] - This project was developed by Isabel Slone (one of the Society's 2007 "summer students") and was in part funded with a grant from Young Canada Works, in part with a grant from the Municipality of the County of Prince Edward, and in part with this Society's research funds.

We are most grateful for the support and sponsorship of the Barley Days Brewery, located close to the Waring House and Barley Room Pub.
