Jefferson County, Iowa
The Fairfield Ledger

  We do not have clippings from all issues for this year but we have almost all of them.  Some issues will be very short since there is little genealogical or historically significant information to be found in that issue. We hope you enjoy reading the clippings we 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. We are grateful to Margaret Stephens for reading all those newspapers and assembling the scrapbook and to Joey Stark for transcribing them.

  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.

An index of all the articles for each year, containing over 4,300 names, may be available some time in the future. When it is complete, you will reach that index by clicking the INDEX link at the beginning of the table below. The Search Engine on the Main Page of this site will find names listed here, or you may search each issue of the paper by using your "Find in page" button under the "Edit" button on your browser. Good luck in your research.
