Added Emden & New Holland Newspaper Archives to Members Only Area. The Emden Historical Society and the New Holland Historical Society allowed us to preserve their collection of almost 21,000 pages of the Emden News, New Holland Journal, and other local newspapers covering 1899 through 1979. Many of these newspapers had become so fragile they could no longer be safely handled. The papers have now been microfilmed, digitized, are searchable, and have been placed in our Members Only Area.
