The Newspaper Project
Newspapers from 1880-1900 are full of gossip columns written by locals. This sold newspapers, and fortunately for family researchers, has provided us with lots of information about our ancestors whereabouts and family life. My focus has been on Sardis and I will add the newspaper tidbits I have collected over the years as time permits. The columns are organized by the town in which they were written.
I invite you to contribute news articles on the community you are researching.
An indexing project for the Spirit of Democracy for the years 1844-1848 is available at
Genealogical Roots in Newspapers.
The index is updated quite frequently.
