PS lighthousePort Sanilac Lighthouse Journals @ Sanilac District Library

Copies of the Port Sanilac Lighthouse logs are now available in the reference section. Due to their fragile condition, the original logs are not available to the public. After exhausting all options to digitize them, the Library Board made the decision to copy them once for all time. The project was carefully undertaken by staff and is now complete.

Volunteers and staff are working to transcribe the journals into PDF documents which are searchable. Volume 1 is completed and may be viewed on our Local History / Genealogy Page.
