The Clayton County Register: McGregor Historical Museum working to digitize North Iowa Times

An article published yesterday in the Clayton County Register of Elkader, IA outlined how the McGregor Historical Museum is working to secure funding for a project to digitize the North Iowa Times and make it the state’s third oldest weekly newspaper available online!

The North Iowa Times is currently preserved on microfilm at the McGregor Public Library but an Advantage community history archive would make this content keyword searchable all the way back to 1856 and accessible online from anywhere.

“People will have the ability to trace their ancestors, not only in McGregor, but as families migrated from town to town in Clayton County,” said museum director Diane Malcom.
