How to Search Our 1888–2003 Newspapers
and Historical Publications

There are basically TWO ways to search:

(1) You can do a general search of the 1888–2003 Newspapers—a function that has limited searhing capabilities—and you will then be presented with the screen below (which also enables you to search our Historical Monographs / Publications). Note well that these papers are very lightly indexed.

(2) You will probably have much better luck using the other Search Tool (see link at end of this paragraph) which employs our Obituary and other Genealogical Indexes instead: We highly recommend you read over How to Search The Indexes first, and then, from that page, click the second tab which brings up the Main Index Search Tool..
