We have exciting news this morning. We knew it was going to happen soon, but we didn’t know when. One of our regular history informants, Larry from the Hesch History blog, sent us an email telling us that the Pierz Journal newspapers we’ve had digitized through the Minnesota Digital Library are now online. Wooooooohoooooooo! It’s happy dance time! (Picture an image of Snoopy doing his Snoopy dance. That’s us!)
The issues that have been digitized run from 1909 through 1913. They do not appear under the Morrison County Historical Society’s collection, but under the Minnesota Newspapers Collection. You can also do a search for “Pierz Journal” and they should appear.
Have at it, researchers, and let us know what you think. If you like what you see, consider giving us a donation toward the digitization of the volumes through 1923. (See the Save the Pierz Journals link in the right sidebar.)
