Tri-Counties Newspaper Clippings
Tri County Clippings- Troy Gazette
Register 1904 - Yesterday's News
Typed by Pat MOTT Gobea
|These clippings from ancient
and fragile newspapers stored above the Troy Gazette-Register office are
being typed by Tri-County volunteers for presentation on site. Primarily
we are preserving the neighborhood news columns and the obituary, marriage
and birth information included in them. I intend also to include articles
that show the influences on the lives and attitudes of our local populations
at the time, and I will also illustrate the individual pages with ads from
the era. Nothing is more revealing of lifestyle than the goods and services
The TGR covers the area of all townships surrounding
Troy and many neighborhoods have a local column submitted, but not necessarily every week or even every year.
Our thanks goes to the staff of the Troy Gazette-Register
for giving us access to this valuable old news so that we can share it
with you. There is no better way to understand the culture and customs
of our old communities than by sifting through these clippings. Even
the names of some of these old communities have ceased to exist in today's
world, but we have them captured and preserved here. If you do not
have the time to enjoy the luxury of sifting through clippings, these will
be included in the Partitioned PICO Search Engine which you can reach from
current What's New Page of the site.
There is a partition just for the TGR Clippings.
