Back in June I posted about the Rochester Newspaper Index because I knew that it was going to be available online. I can now report that it is online on this page. It an instant popular hit and has generated many requests for copies of newspaper articles from the Rochester Public Library. So don’t be surprised if, at this time, it takes a little time to get your articles.
Also note that the online files are rather large and you may need a high speed internet connection.
I hope you find the person you are looking for.
