The Rochester Public Library has scanned and uploaded a set of 20 scrapbooks with newspaper clippings. This set contains biographies of men that are mostly in the form of obits. The time period of these scrapbooks are from about 1924 to 1942. It appears that these scrapbooks were a project that never was completed as most of the clippings are of men with surnames A – G. This is the index of these scrapbooks. It has links within the index that you can click on and it will open the scrapbook. The scrapbooks are in PDF format so you will need the free Adobe PDF reader to view both the index and scrapbooks.
