Duncan MacDonald, the compiler of the "Newspaper Tidbits" recorded in this book, collected newspaper clippings regarding Cornwall, Ontario, Canada families' for many years. It occurred to him that an indexed volume of transcriptions of those clippings would be of interest to others seeking their Cornwall roots. Oftentimes Mr. MacDonald found newspapers announcements of vital events such as birth, marriage, death that had escaped being recorded in a church register.

Newspapers from which clippings have been extracted include The Cornwall Observer, Cornwall Chronicle, Cornwall Constitutional, Cornwall Economist, Cornwall Advertiser, Cornwall Freeholder, Cornwall Gazette, Cornwall Reporter, plus extracts from other newspapers in Toronto, London England and several newspapers in the USA. Each entry identifies the origin and date of the original clipping.

This collection is not a complete record of all clippings of genealogical interest from Cornwall newspapers, however a significant number of early pioneers and their ancestors are included. Readers should first check the Index pages listed below, to determine if the person or persons that they seek are included.

NOTE about print quality: acquired MacDonald Research Centre after the passing of its founder and primary transcriber/compiler, Duncan MacDonald. We are pleased to make his books available under the new MacDonald Research imprint. Each book has been reprinted as it was prepared by Mr. MacDonald, without corrections or additions. Modern technology helped us reproduce the original work in as-good-as, or better quality as that which was originally published. Much of MacDonald's original work was created on a typewriter. His well-worn "masters" were made on a photocopier. We've cleaned them up as much as possible without re-keying all of the content resulting in books that are useful and complete, but of a print quality that reflects the technology of the time in which they were orignally published.
