Society Seeks Records From 50s, 60s, 70s

     The DuBois Area Historical Society Genealogy Department is looking for some help.

      Carol Johnson, director of genealogy, notes that the department has a collection of newspaper obituaries, marriages, and anniversary articles that exceeds 100,000 items and is still growing. However, the department is lacking material from The Courier-Express in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.

       The DuBois Area Historical Society would appreciate donations of these newspapers from anyone who has saved newspapers from this time period and no longer wants them. Donations of clippings and scrapbooks from those time periods would also be appreciated.

      “We would like to add these missing items to our collection,” said Johnson. “If anyone wants to keep their collection, but it willing to bring it into the Society, we can make copies and return the originals.”

       Anyone with these items may bring them to the museum at 30 W. Long Ave., DuBois, any Tuesday or Wednesday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

            “Please help us make our collection of obituary and marriage information more complete,” said Johnson.
