Newspaper Searches: Valuable Genealogical Resource, many digitized.


Today at the Dane County Area Genealogical Society Program we had 47 participants come to our program that featured a Genealogy Reference Librarian at Wisconsin Historical Society. We learned about using Badgerlink.net, to help find digital links to Search Historical Newspapers across all States.

Also on the Wisconsin Historical Society website you can find “Guide to Wisconsin Newspapers 1833-2004” revised by Jim Hansen in 2017. There is a PDF version that is a great resource for learning about all known Newspapers in most communities in Wisconsin, even small towns, other language papers printed in the past by immigrant groups living in Wisconsin. There is much to learn by seeking and review of print paper in the past-many now digitized.
