Tri-Counties Newspaper Clippings
Joyce's Search Tip - August 2008
||Do You Know that you can search just the
239 pages of Troy Gazette-Register Clippings
the site by using the TGR Clippings button in the Partitioned search
engine at the bottom of the
What's New Page?
You'll also find obituary and other newspaper clippings using the three
county-level Obits by Cemetery buttons and the general Clippings
Button. Additional clippings can be found in the Birth, Marriage, and some
Troy Gazette Register 1904 -
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. 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.
I am grouping these neighborhoods
roughly by the township in which they were / are located
Not all Communities listed above had columns published in 1904-
It no doubt depended on the correspondents available.

- A different one on every page
I found two pages of 1917 mixed with another paper awhile back and
thought we would find the rest, but from the looks of things on Friday
when I was at the office, I don't think so.
It looks like 1905 through the first half of 1911 is missing and this
will be all of 1917.
