Although most of my personal genealogy may only be viewed privately, I decided that the best way to expand my research on the Internet was to create this limited page of information that may be relevant to other researchers.

Detroit Free Press Archives

Finding historical copies of the Detroit Free Press is easier than it was even ten years ago.  Rather than visit a library, you can pay a small fee to use the service to view and even search most of the archives.

If that premium service is too rich for you, here are the other locations I’ve discovered that own some or all of the Detroit Free Press microfilm set:

Microfilm Location City Oldest Issue
Bruce T. Halle Library Ypsilanti, MI 1932
Detroit Public Library Detroit, MI 1831
Hatcher Graduate Library Ann Arbor, MI 1831
Library of Michigan Lansing, MI 1837
Lydia M. Olson Library Marquette, MI 1969
Michigan State University Library East Lansing, MI 1858
Mount Clemens Public Library Mount Clemens, MI 1955
Stockwell-Mudd Library Albion, MI 1859
