Nodaway County, Missouri Newspaper Indexes

       

Abstracted Newspaper Index of Nodaway County, Missouri: 1869-1900 (445 pages, hardbound)

From Mickey Biedermann: mickeyb@tds.net "I must tell you that a number of years ago (I think about 10), I purchased your Book, Abstracted Newspaper Index of Nodaway County, Missouri.  I was collaborating with a distant cousin in another state, and I sent her the book too.  One of the best genealogical investments I've made.  I refer to it so often.  I wish every county had such a fine resource.  Early on I started using yellow highlighter to indicate kin, and I must say there's more and more yellow all the time. [2012]"
