Newspapers

1902 to 1984

Unfortunately, no index is available for Kingston-Frontenac newspapers in this date-range, and the newspapers have not yet been digitized. The best way to find news items on a particular subject is to narrow your date range as much as possible using other sources (e.g. determine an individual’s date of death using cemetery records or other genealogical tools) and then browse the newspapers on microfilm.

The larger Kingston newspapers (e.g. Whig-Standard) are available on microfilm at the Kingston Frontenac Public Library (see Related Articles below), and also at the Stauffer Library, Queen’s University (see Resources below).  Other newspapers (e.g. Frontenac NewsEMCKingston This Week) are also available in print. The dates and holdings vary, so it’s best to check the library catalogue before you come–or contact us to ask about a particular issue or date range.

If you don’t live in the area, try your local Family History Centre. These are located all over the world. To find your nearest centre, visit the Find a Family History Center page of the FamilySearch website (see Resources Blow)  and type the name of a town or city into the search box.
