Indiana Newspapers in Mishawaka

MICROFILM IN MISHAWAKA! UNCATALOGUED INDIANA NEWSPAPERS

The Indiana State Library has the best collection of Indiana newspapers in the world – check out their guide .

What may well be the second most extensive such collection is in the Heritage Center at the Mishawaka-Penn-Harris Public Library in St. Joseph County, much more conveniently located for those living in northern Indiana (and for those who approach the state from the north). But it is not enumerated on their web site. The following is my personal list; more extensive holdings for any given county may be found in that county. Suggestions and corrections are welcome.
