Bradford Republican Newspapers
The Bradford Public Library District is working with the Stark County Genealogical Society, the Stark County Historical
Society, and the Toulon Public Library to get all issues of the Bradford Republican Newspaper, the Stark County News and the
Prairie Times digitized and accessible free of charge on the Bradford and Toulon library websites.
These old weekly newspapers covering Stark County's small rural communities are
gold mines of historical and genealogical information. The cost to digitize each roll of microfilm is $90. In
total Bradford has 45 rolls and Toulon has 70. Please consider purchasing one roll to be digitized with a $90 donation.
Of course, we welcome donations of any amount to help offset costs.
