One of the best ways to know what it was really like BACK in TIME is though pictures and newspapers.  This page is devoted to newspaper articles or clippings from different newspapers of Decatur County.  On the Decatur County Newspapers on Microfilm  page you will find the list of newspapers that the Kansas State Historical Society has microfilmed, and their policy for interlibrary loan.  If you have old newspapers or copies from them and would transcribe them this would make wonderful information for all those that are doing research in the county.  Include only information concerning Decatur County, and please list what paper it was taken from and the date of the paper.   The more that is shared the more valuable this web site will become.  This is NOT for obits unless they are a small part of the paper that is being transcribed.  You can get copies of obits from the Last Indian Raid Museum.  Their address is located on the Research Help page.
