Information contained in this database has been obtained from the files of the Carver County Historical Society Library; specifically, the newspaper index (in the future to include scrapbooks, family histories etc...).  As with any information source, errors, inconsistencies, and accuracy in spelling and content are unavoidable.  Therefore, we suggest checking for alternate spellings when researching individual names or places.  We have tried to include alternatives whenever possible.

Some examples of alternate spellings include:
   Miller/Mueller    Bergman/Bergmann    Blocker/Plocher    Hemming/Henning

The Carver County Historical Society is grateful to Southwest Newspapers for their generous financial support of the newspaper indexing project.

Research assistance

If you are unable to visit our library in person, you may contact us with your questions.

Library Fees:

  • Requests for copies of articles found in the newspaper index / database will be $2.00 per article with no minimum. There will be no research fee charged for newspaper index requests. A $3.00 shipping and handling fee will be charged.
  • Research fees will only be charged when research other than the newspaper index is requested. This fee will remain $25 per hour, and 25 cents a copy (not $2.00/article), with a $5.00 minimum.
  • These fees do not apply to researchers visiting the library who do not request additional research assistance.

What are these fees used for? Library fees help offset a portion of the costs of running the library including staff time, purchasing new materials, and maintenance of the microfilm reader.
