Kearney County Newspapers

The Kearney County newspapers are very sporodic at the beginning of the time the county was formed. We have microfilmed newspapers covering all of the county, including the towns of Minden, Axetll, Wilcox and Hildreth. This project will take several years to do as one person has undertaken the task of abstracting the information on births, marriages and deaths. Some years are missing, some years there are very few. We must remember that it was not a common occurance to place a notice of birth or death in the newspapers in the late 1800's and marriage announcements mainly occured in the notice of a license issuance. There will be a listing of the newspaper and the towns which they cover as this area is updated. Please feel free to add your information to this area by sending us an email with your family information. Maybe you know the exact date of a marriage for which there is only a noted 'on Monday' the couple was married. Maybe you have the spouses name for which there is only a note that so and so brought home a new wife. Any help would be appreciated and your name and email will be included in the note on that person.
