The Fairfield Journal - 1898

We do not have a complete selection of issues for the year. We hope you enjoy reading the issues we do have and we hope you find the name of someone from your family. You may select the issue you wish to read by clicking on the issue date in the table below.

Since these articles are transcribed by volunteers we can not guarantee they are 100% accurate but our volunteers are very good and make few mistakes. Some spelling may seem incorrect (and it is by today's standards); nonetheless we have copied the information just as it was in the newspaper. Since we are also only transcribing information from a newspaper the accuracy of the information itself is only as good as the newspaper from which it is taken. Please check all information against primary documents and choose what to keep for yourself.

At this point we do not have an index of the 10,000+ names appearing in the articles below. The FindFast Search Engine on the Main Page of this site will find names in these issues, or you may search each issue of the paper by viewing each issue and using the "Find in page" feature under the "Edit" button on your browser. Good luck in your research.
