Help the West Parry Sound District Museum Digitize the North Star Newspaper Archives!

This May is Museum Month we are thinking BIG! Thanks to a generous donation from the Kitchen Family, the Museum is able to begin digitizing the North Star archives, but before we do, we need your help! Support our efforts to get as many newspapers as we can digitized by making a donation today.

In order to make the entire North Star collection digitally available, we need to raise $150,000.00. It is a big goal, but every dollar counts! The closer we are to raising the funds needed, the more newspapers we can digitize & make accessible to our community.

Lend your support to this important initiative. Donate to the Museum between May 18th and May 22nd & help preserve our areas history!

Have you been trying to find out information on your family's history? Searching endlessly to find that obituary or birth announcement? Heard about a local historic event & want to know more? Or maybe you are like us and just love reading 'yesterday's news'?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, lend your support to this important fundraiser!

The digitization of the newspapers, will do more than just preserve the original copies. This project will allow you to experience our areas history like never before, immersing yourself in the past with informative articles that cover a wide array of topics, such as world wars, local & world events, birth & death announcements, and so much more! The newspapers provide a glimpse of what society was like at the time, allowing individuals to recall memories of days gone by, or in a lot of cases, provide researchers with snapshot of what life used to be like.
