Elgin OGS began a very ambitious project in 2004 to create a genealogical index of those issues of the St. Thomas Times-Journal which exist in duplicate. Early in 2004, the Elgin County Archives acquired the bound copies of back issues of St. Thomas newspapers housed in the basement of the Times-Journal office. Together with a large quantity of the same already held by the Elgin County Library /Archives, (which had been used for microfilming purposes), it was found that nearly a complete duplicate set existed for a significant time period. Under the supervision of Archivist Brian Masschaele, volunteers from Elgin OGS created an inventory of what newspapers exist in duplicate and selected the best copy for preservation at the Elgin County Archives. Elgin OGS acquired the discarded copies and began dispersing them to volunteers’ homes to be indexed.

Prior to 1918, two newspapers existed in St. Thomas, the Daily Times and the Journal. In 1918 a merger occurred creating the St. Thomas Times-Journal. This newspaper continues to be Elgin County’s only daily paper.

For a more detailed description of these newspapers, their microfilm number, and earlier St. Thomas newspapers, please refer to Discovering Your Roots In Elgin found on this website.

Microfilmed copies of the Journal, the Times, and the Times-Journal are available for research at the St. Thomas Public Library.

The index has been created primarily to record births, deaths, marriages, engagements, anniversaries and birthdays. Some local history items have been included at the discretion of the transcriber. Only a limited amount of information has been extracted for the index. It is the responsibility of the researcher to view the newspaper on microfilm to see the entire article. Sometimes a person’s death appeared more than once in the same issue, and a funeral notice may follow a few issues later. The researcher is advised to record all these references.

The volunteers who are currently working on this project are: Carol Van Harn, Gina Coady, Rhonda Brindley, Jim McCallum, Jean Griffin, Pat Temple, Jean Bircham, Patricia Griffin, Fred Prong, Sharon Sanders, Janet Jones Bruce Johnson and Donna Longhurst.
