Important notes

  • Requests for research of the Hamilton Spectator newspapers can only be undertaken if a date, month or year can be provided.
  • You are buying the time of a Centre volunteer to undertake research on your behalf. We cannot guarantee that we will find exactly what you are looking for. Records simply may not exist, be available or be accessible.  Where possible, we will endeavour to complete your request or possibly provide you with some guidance on other avenues which you can pursue. For this reason, we do not offer refunds if we do not find the information you are after.
