Digital Kingston is actually several sites and resources brought together under one roof: it's a collection of stories and articles, it's a resource for historical and genealogical research, and it's a collection of digitized objects and images of historical significance.

Research, Indexes and Collections
For those wanting to delve deeper into the history of Kingston, or into their own history as they perform their genealogical research, the Research, Indexes and Collections sections of Digital Kingston will be helpful.
The Research site brings together articles and resources, available either on the web or through the Kingston Frontenac Public Library, that will help you in your historical investigation.
Our Indexes site gathers two major indexes, one to our Historic Newspaper collection and the other to the Historic Kingston journal.
And finally, the Collections site houses all of the works that we have digitized for these and other projects.
