Muskoka Newspapers

Muskoka District has genealogical source material at:
    Huntsville Public Library
     Gravenhurst Public Library
     Bracebridge Public Library
 

Each of these three town libraries has microfiche or microfilm copies of newspapers published in the town. As of Summer 1998 a volunteer project is taking shape to index newspapers ( births, marriages, obituaries ) at the 3 libraries.

  OGSPI now ( May 2005 ) includes the Huntsville Forester:
1895 1897 1898 1899
1900 1901 1902 1903 1904 1905 1906 1907 1908 1909
1910 1911 1912 1913 1914 1915 1916 1917 1918 1919
1920 1921 1922 1923 1924 1925 1926 1927 1928 1929
1930 1931 1932 1933 1934 1935 1936 1937 1938 1939
1940 1941
1968 1969
1970 1971 1972 1973 1974 1975 1976 1977 1978 1979
1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1987 1988 1989
1990 1991

  Publication dates are encoded in the OGSPI header line as 8 digit numbers in yyyy-mm-dd sequence so 1975-10-23 means Oct 23 1975.

 Indexing teams scanned each paper to include local and community news sections as well as the regular announcements so you may find a marriage or obituary/death listed in OGSPI for more than one issue or on different pages in the same issue.

  Huntsville Public Library can supply a "hard copy" version of most articles indexed in the Huntsville Forester.
