Great Online Resource: Twin Falls Newspapers

Whether you’re doing genealogical research or looking for a specific event, old newspapers can be a good resource – and even more so if they’re available to search online. TFPL has the local Twin Falls papers going all the way back to the first one in October of 1904, and we have most of them in both microfilm and digital formats. The digital is easier to search (though remember you’re trying to search for text in an image), but the microfilm has a sharper look since it’s just a copy of a copy, rather than a copy of a copy of a copy. Clear as mud, right?

Anyway, if you’re wanting to dig into the archives, click here or drop in and we’ll show you how to use our modern microfilm machine (it can save digital copies, too).
