Includes microfilmed and scanned images of local newspapers (some as early as 1883) and a number of local history books that were completed as part of the Summer Experience Program of the Ontario Ministry of Culture.


The digitization of many of the historic records held at the Kenora Public Library was begun in 2005 with funding provided by the Government of Ontario, through the Heritage and Libraries Branch of the Ministry of Culture, and Industry Canada through its Community Access Program
With additional assistance of volunteers from Ancestry Seekers, and students from local high schools, back issues of the local newspapers are currently being copied from microfilm to a digital format. As these newspapers are digitized they will be uploaded to this site for easy viewing. All newspapers are in .pdf format, and will you will need Adobe Reader to view them.
