Cheshire Newspaper Articles Collection Index (1756 – 1922)
The Cheshire Newspaper Articles Collection is drawn from state and national newspapers that printed articles about the town and its residents.
Most articles include the names of local residents. Many articles are very brief, or are legal notices that include local residents’ names. For genealogists, the value of these articles is that they place an individual in an historic place and time. Historians will be interested to read about notable town events.
The Collection does not include all events that occurred in town. In some cases there are gaps of many years between articles. The intent of the collection is twofold. It partially fills a gap that exists regarding newspaper archives, and it provides information to family history researchers about ancestors who at one time lived in Cheshire.
Please note: The articles are protected by copyright laws and may not be used without the permission of the provider.
