Howard County Newspapers

For many years there were two newspapers being published, The Times and the Plain Dealer. The Times represented the Republican Party and it's political views while the Plain Dealer represented the Democratic point of view. If you do not find what you are looking for in one newspaper, there is a possibility that it will be in the other newspaper.

The following are marriage and death indexes to the Plain Dealer newspaper for the years shown. In viewing the indexes remember that the date of reference is that of the paper, not of the occurrence of the marriage or the death.

All of these scans of the Index were provided by Janice Sowers, past president of the Howard-Winneshiek Genealogy Society

A project is underway to scan all of the indexed newspaper articles and to transcribe and post these articles on the IAGenWeb boards. As the events for each year are scanned and transcribed, they will be linked that the index. Bill Waters is scanning the articles and Joy Moore is transcribing and posting them to the IAGenWeb boards.
