Digitized Newspaper Examples

The Waterford Genealogical Society has graciously funded the digitization of historical newspapers from the Waterford area. These newspapers cover the years between 1830 and 1896. The Waterford Township Public Library is currently undertaking an effort to make these newspapers available to the general public. The issues listed below are examples of the newspapers in the collection. All files are in PDF format and can be viewed with Adobe Reader or any program that supports the display of PDF files. The files are large in size and may take some time to download.   The microfilm that the files were made from is also available for viewing in the library.
