The Year 1897

If anyone has a copy of the Register published between 1891 and up until the end of the month of December 1896, please contact me. I am also looking for the months of Oct., Nov., and December, 1897.

The community columns are a great way of tracking the seasons, shipping, politics and most important, the lives of our ancestors. I wish I had the time to copy all of them.

Since I may add information to the previously posted issues a graphic will be used to alert the reader to recent additions since the search engine that I have installed (on the year 1897 page) may not have spidered the new information yet. Please note that I have posted the grammar and typo's as they appear.

If anyone has a copy of the Register published between 1891 and up until the end of the month of December 1896, please contact me. I am also looking for the months of Oct., Nov., and December, 1897.
