Microfilm of newspapers at Central City Library. We are NOT certain that they have the entire collection of film as found at NSHS. Please send donation and SASE with any request for copies from newspapers that you direct to the Library.
IF you should find an issue that has NOT been microfilmed, please notify NSHS and arrange to send it to them.
Most of us will eventually find that we need an article from an issue that is not available.
If you have an old obituary, marriage notice or other fragment of the newspaper published 1924 or earlier, please type & submit to this page for publication on the internet. Contact: Ted & Carole Miller <email@example.com>.
