WWI era Bruce County newspapers are available online.

First World War era local history has been captured by the Bruce County Genealogical Society. Four local Bruce County newspapers – Paisley, Port Elgin, Walkerton, and Wiarton – have been scanned and converted into searchable PDF files which are available for viewing via the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre Online Collections website.

During the anniversary years of the Great War, the Bruce County Genealogical Society and Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre were looking to find a way to make this record of events more accessible to researchers, students, genealogists, historians, and anyone with an interest in the people and events in Bruce County communities. The BCGS received funding support for the newspaper scanning project from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Community Foundation Grey Bruce.
