The Tillsonburg Observer (1863-1919), the Tillsonburg Liberal (1887-1919), and the Tillsonburg News (1920-2011) are available on microfilm at the Tillsonburg Branch.  Issues (up to 1972) have been  indexed for birth, marriage and death notices (see below). A digitization project begun in 2020 to make early issues of these papers available online is currently on hold, but may resume in 2024-25.
