"I'd never thought to check German language resources, though that makes a lot sense. How would I go about checking out this index? In particular, I'd really love to add Katharina's notice to my data."
That was my thinking back in 2007 when I was wrapping up the local research for my 7 generations of 100% German-American ancestry in southeastern Wisconsin. I didn't have a single sample of my "German-American-ness" (other than local church records). Then, a handful of clippings from another researcher pointed me in the direction of the library's newspaper microfilm collection. Duh!
The index is not online, but you're welcome to contact me directly.
