I really appreciate the information on the Newspaper Index at the Chariton Library. I copies lists of my families - Blue, Gookin, Kells, Hancock, Kahoe, Prather - and now will decide which articles I need to have copies. I visited the Genealogy Room at Chariton a few years ago and could have spent many hours there. I did get quite a bit of information in the short time I was there. Unfortunately, I was with other people not quite as interested in family history and they were in a hurry. One of them was my own Sister!

I tried several urls to click on but got little results. The only Curtis
that came up, very slowly,
was Laura Curtis for the history room.
To experiment typed in versions of Chynowith/Chenoweth ...
There was no place to sign up if that is a requirement.
Hmmm. Can any one speculate what I am doing wrong ??
Thanks so much. It's exciting news if there's access to
the wonderful array of records they have in the history
Wonderful, Nancee, that you met Darlene. I do believe
it was she that helped me track down records showing
the four wives of Lot Curtis. That remained a mystery
Frank's writing is wonderful. Will look forward to accessing
Thanks again, Nancee, for all you do for us.

Here's the Chariton Public Library URL:
Once you're there, click on "Use Our Library"
Once that page comes up, click on "Genealogy Collection"
Once that comes up, click on "Newspaper Index"
That should bring up a page displaying the index with each letter (in some
cases groups of letters) index as a separate PDF file. Click on whichever
letter you're interested in, then either scroll to where you want to go once
the PDF file opens or use your computer's "find" feature.
Shoulda stopped at the museum, Nancee. Can't get away from the joint. Went
out this morning to run an errand and ended up giving extracurricular tours.
Oh well, that's what we want.
I had the privilege of meeting Darlene Arnold today on a trip to Chariton
Library. She mentioned their new website and all the information that has
been added to it.. There is a wonderful newspaper index that she has
compiled and the Lucas County Blog Spot. So, if you haven't done so already
go to http://www.chariton.lib.ia.us/use-the-library In the navigation
area, click on the Genealogy Collection.. A lot of great information has
been put there for all of you to read. Links have been put there for the
Chariton Newspaper Index 1867 - 2005 and for the Lucas County Genealogy
Blogspot. Oh, and click on the Lucas Countyan link/blog by Frank Myers..
You'll thoroughly enjoy is stories.....
I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did. It's now on my bookmark of
favorites'. Best Regards,
