Newspaper Finding Aids
This list is a compilation of all newspapers that have been digitized to date, and are now available on our online database. We are continuing to add more newspapers from our collection on a regular basis, and they will be automatically added to this list as they are digitized.
The Elgin County Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society has worked to index a number of the issues that are on our finding aid. The indexes are available here: https://elgin.ogs.on.ca/ancestor-indexes/newspaper-indexes/.
Issues beyond the digitized dates are likely available to view at the Archives on microfilm.
To find a person by their name try using quotes and the proximity operator. e.g. "Allan Smith"~3 finds the words Allan and Smith within 3 words of each other. See the search help for more details and additional options.
If you don't find what you are looking for, or to recreate the experience of the physical newspaper, you may browse individual issues by selecting a newspaper name and issue date.
This newspaper digitization project was funded in part by the Elgin County Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, the Estate of Donna Vera Evans Bushell and the Blidner Family Foundation. We also want to mention the assistance of the Aylmer-Malahide Museum and Archives, who allowed us to digitize and copy early issues of the Aylmer Sun.
