Genealogy Microfilms/fiches at Whitby Pubic Library

So many times we are asked about the types of genealogical microfilms available for research at the Whitby Public Library.  It is a good question deserving of an answer.   Topics vary from 'older local and Toronto newspapers' to Ontario County and Canadian Census information.'  You may not have been aware of the presence of such data.  It is tucked in between the Whitby Archives and the Computer Training Lab at the east end of the second floor.  On the east wall of this area are several microfilm readers and opposite to them are several cabinets of microfilms.  To help you we have provdied a list for download as a PDF.  Happy hunting.
