Newspapers

Newspaper Clippings – Obituaries and assorted clippings have been gleaned from old Clay County newspapers. Many of the clippings are from the 1800’s. We have over 6000 family files in our collection that contain various bits of information about family names. A good amount of the information is in the form of newspaper clippings.  We are constantly adding not only new newspaper clippings but also old clippings from donated newspapers.

Newspapers on Microfilm – We also have an extensive list of microfilm rolls of Clay County newspapers, some dating back to 1854. Old newspapers are not only fun to read but contain a wealth of information for the genealogist or the historian in the family.
