Oswego (NY) Newspaper Index 1820-1855 Plus

The Oswego Newspaper Index provides citations and descriptions of articles appearing in selected newspapers published in Oswego from 1820 through 1855. Penfield Library's Microfilm Collection of Newspapers published in Oswego runs from 1819 to the present under many titles. Complete runs of old newspapers are no longer available so gaps do exist. Citations and descriptions appearing between 1871-1872 and 1881-1883 are included, but are at present partially complete.

The index includes news articles pertaining to all of Oswego County, with a strong emphasis on the City of Oswego. Articles from the national news are available only if there was an impact on local occurrences and personalities.

All indexed newspapers are available on microfilm in the Periodicals/Media area of Penfield Library or the Oswego School District Public Library. If you cannot use the microfilm at either of these sites, you can use interlibrary loan services at your own library.
