I’ve been working on a name and subject index to two Skidmore, Missouri newspapers, the Skidmore Standard (late 1898 – 1904) and the Skidmore New Era (1905 – 1915, with 1905-1906 currently indexed). I had copies of the index for 1898-1902 printed and sent many to local libraries and national genealogy library collections. The cost to do that for all the years is prohibitive, and I discovered that I could host the entire index online for about the cost of printing and mailing a single year.
I’m giving the online index a try. If you haven’t already, please take a look at the Skidmore Newspaper Index search on this site. I just uploaded the data for 1906 and will add more entries as I finish each year.
