Staff will search for one article in up to two different newspapers per request. The search includes up to 7 issues of a daily paper or 4 issues of a weekly paper. It is very important to include the date (e.g. 7/28/1889), since most newspapers are not indexed.
There is no guarantee an article will be found. Payment covers the search time, regardless of whether a search is successful. Please note the amount of information in a newspaper article we find for you may vary greatly. If an article is found, staff will search one additional issue of the newspaper to locate other related articles.
Caution: If you have a date that is before 1860 or from a location outside of Wisconsin, please email historydocs@wisconsinhistory.org before you place an order. We want to make sure we can find an available newspaper to look for an article. That time frame can be difficult to locate a newspaper.

Product Details

Let us help you find a newspaper article in our collection of newspapers, which ranks second only to that of the Library of Congress.  This service is best for newspaper 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 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 newspaper article in up to two different newspapers per request. The search includes up to 7 issues of a daily paper or 4 issues of a weekly paper.   Payment covers the search time, regardless of whether a search is successful.   Please note the amount of information in a newspaper article we find for you may vary greatly.  If an article is found, staff will search one additional issue of the newspaper to locate other related articles.

If your order request results in more extensive searching, your request will be forwarded to  asklibrary@wisconsinhistory.org at staff discretion.
