Historic Whitby newspapers now online (Canada)

Researchers, students, genealogists and members of the public now have access to historical Whitby newspapers through an online database offered by the Whitby Public Library. Complete issues are available for the Whitby Gazette (1862-1912), Whitby Chronicle (1857-1912), Whitby Gazette and Chronicle (1912-1942), Whitby Weekly News (1955-1965) and the full run of the Whitby Free Press (1971-1996). Users can view the newspapers through their web browser or they have the option of downloading and saving the images to their personal devices. The Whitby Newspaper Index is also available to assist users in searching for news articles in all of Whitby's newspapers, including Whitby This Week. The digitization of Whitby's historic newspapers was made possible by the assistance of a generous anonymous donor. The newspaper database will supplement the Whitby Historic Images database, which contains more than 6,000 images of Whitby from the 1840s to the present
