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 newspapers.com 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|
