The Value of Newspapers

The loss of the 1890 census leaves researchers with a huge gap in the family history. Newspapers from this era are loaded with information but tedious to search systematically. I have added a new section for newspaper tidbits. As time permits, I am adding articles I have collected on the town of Sardis for the 1890's. 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.

Please contact me if you find mistakes, broken links, wish to contribute resources, or have suggestions for website improvements.
