Jefferson County, Iowa
The Fairfield Weekly Ledger

We do not have clippings from all issues for each year but we have most 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 Mrs. Verda Baird for reading all those newspapers and assembling the scrapbook, and for the volunteer transcribers who retyped these many pages.

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.

A Compact Disk (CD) containing the actual images in JPEG format of the scrapbook pages containing these articles may be purchased from the Jefferson County Genealogical Society. Please refer to the JCGS page on this site for further information.

An index of all the articles for each year, containing over 9,000 names, may be available at some point in the future. When it is complete, you will reach that index by clicking the INDEX link at the beginning of the table below. This index will also be searched by the Search Engine on the Main Page of this site. You may also search each issue of the paper by viewing an issue and using your "Find in page" button under the "Edit" button on your browser. Good luck in your research.
