Local Newspapers Now Searchable

We have exciting news!  You can now click here to access 101 years of our local newspapers, The Wayne County Alliance and The Record.  The papers included are from 1876 to 1977.  They are searchable by topic, name, subject, etc., or you can browse by month and/or year.  You can clip articles of interest, download complete pages, or print what you find.  In my searches I've been able to find wedding, birth, and graduation announcements, obituaries of family members, interesting news articles, plus many "who visited whom" tidbits.  Click the link above and discover some of your family's local history!

Funding for this project was provided by Senator Michael Nozzolio and the Friends of the Sodus Community Library.  We also are grateful to Wilma Young for supporting the digitization of the library's microfilms of The Record
