This service is best for items that have a particular date associated with them, such as election results, natural disasters, birth and marriage announcements, anniversary celebrations and other specific local events. Most newspapers and periodicals are not indexed, so it is important to provide as much information as you have available concerning the date and location.

Staff will search for one article in up to two different newspapers or periodicals per request. The search includes up to 7 issues of a daily paper or 4 issues of a weekly paper. The search of an article in a periodical includes the specific periodical that is requested.

Payment covers the search time, regardless of whether a search is successful.
