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

The Newspaper/Resource Search is a searchable index of newspaper, record, and archival materials available from the Carver County Historical Society’s Research Library and Archive. Please see Library Resources and Genealogy for detailed information of the materials available at the CCHS.

If you wish to obtain copies of materials within the index, the CCHS staff is readily available to assist you with operating our microfilm readers, locating records, or providing access to archival material.
