Newspapers belonging to various individuals have been donated to the Arnprior & McNab/Braeside Archives (AMBA) since it opened in 1993. The Arnprior District Museum transferred various newspaper editions since 1999. The Arnprior Chronicle-Guide donated its collection to the AMBA in 1995.
Scope and Content
This collection includes several different area newspapers which were published on a weekly basis. Most newspapers in the collection were published in Arnprior or contain content related to the Arnprior area, with the exception of the Scottish American Journal.
The complete collection has been digitized up to 1937 and is available on our website. Ripped, missing and yellowed pages make it impossible to search every page of the digitized collection, so it is also worth browsing issues of interest. A link to the finding aid is below.
Microfilm copies of most of the collection are also available for viewing in the AMBA. In some cases, the microfilm copy is the only remaining copy. Contact the Archives for more information for specific dates as there are significant gaps in the holdings described below:;
