Surname index to 14 newspapers published in northern Michigan between 1870 and 1930


The counties of Cheboygan and Mackinac, in northern Michigan, have been home to a number of newspapers since the mid-1800's. Collected from 14 different newspapers published in the two counties, this database is an index of persons whose names appeared in these publications for one reason or another between 1871 and 1929. This update to the existing file brings the total to about 26,700. It was compiled from records contained in the Cheboygan Public Library, St. Ignace Public Library, Mackinaw Public Library, and the State of Michigan Library at Lansing. Death notices, marriages, anniversaries, divorces, adoptions, and naturalizations are among the most common reasons a person's name would appear in the newspaper. Married women are listed under both their spouse's name and their maiden name. An asterisk indicates that only a microfilm copy is extant. Copies of individual articles can be obtained by contacting the Cheboygan Public Library, St. Ignace Public Library, or Mackinaw Public Library.
