The library retains microfilm of various Campbell County newspapers from 1892 to the present. The reference staff has indexed these newspapers with a specific focus on genealogical information including announcements of births, marriages, divorces, and obituaries.
Also indexed are major Gillette News-Record articles from 1988-2001, which can be searched by the reference staff upon request. The news indexing was stopped after the establishment of the Gillette News-Record website in December 2001. The Campbell County newspapers used to create the genealogy indices are:
Campbell County Record (June 1918 -April 1925), abbreviated CCR
Gillette News (January 1892 – November 1926), abbreviated GN
Gillette News-Record (April 1926 – 2014), abbreviated NR
You may request a copy of these announcements by phone at 307-687-0115 or using our online form. The Gillette News-Record is available online. You may browse the recent obituaries, or search the site for the name of the person you are looking for.
