Kaukauna Newspaper Index

The Kaukauna Newspaper Index contains references to a selective list of articles appearing in various Kaukauna newspapers. Indexing begins in 1880 and continues to the present, though coverage in years before 1980 is not comprehensive. The index is maintained by Kaukauna Public Library staff & volunteers and is updated regularly.

How to Search:

Type in any word or words and click search. On the following page you will be able to limit the search by decade or by article type. If you are looking for an article that had a photograph, check the Contains Photo box. Remember that that this is just an index containing the headline, date, and selected subjects terms. It is usually best to start with a simple one or two word search. To limit your search to a specific year, you can type the year in the search box next to your search word(S).
