These abstracts do not include every item on every person names and not all items are verbatim. Many were shortened to record as much information as possible on 3x5 cards. These cards have been microfilmed and placed in the Rockford Public Library.
The library in Pecatonica, IL has 35 rolls of film from the Pecatonica News from 1872 through 1977. They have a film reader and items may be seen in their entirety at that library. Items are easily located since dates, page and column numbers are given.
