Rochester Newspaper Index

The Rochester Newspaper Index is a project of the Rochester Public Library. The database consists of references to articles that appeared in the Rochester newspapers during the period 1818-1897. The indexing was done in two time periods: 1818 – 1850 and 1851 – 1897. For a list of the newspapers indexed and the abbreviations used, please consult the Frequently Asked Questions . Newspapers from 1898-1903 have been indexed in a card catalog file available in the Local History Division. This portion of the indexed has not been digitized, and is not available online.

If you would like to order a copy of an article, please consult the Ordering Information page for complete details. Articles may be sent via e-mail, fax (within the Continental U.S.) or standard post. Please allow seven (7) days for the completion of your order.

Please note that in many cases, particularly for the very early newspapers, articles may be only a line or two long. Staff cannot look at the newspaper for you before sending an article, and refunds will not be granted because an article did not contain the information you were hoping to find. (Please consult the Frequently Asked Questions  for additional information.)
