Newspaper Records


The Kokomo-Howard County Public Library has been compiling  spreadsheets of  anniversary, birth, divorce filings, divorce decrees, engagements, marriage licenses, and wedding announcements from the Kokomo Tribune and Kokomo Perspective newspapers since August, 2011.  (Announcements from the Kokomo Herald will be included beginning in October, 2013.)  These searchable pdf files contain the names, dates, newspaper publication name  and publication date of the announcement.  Maiden names are included when they are available.   We are pleased to provide access to these records through our Howard County Memory Project website.  These  files will be updated at the beginning of each new month. 


 If you are looking for a certain announcement, select the link for the announcement category you desire, and  do a "Ctrl-f" search,  entering the last name of the individual.   Once you find the name you are looking for, you will know when the announcement was published, and where it was published.  You can come to the Genealogy & Local History Department  to view the announcement on our  microfilm readers, making your own copies, or you can contact us and we can  make a copy for you.  Please check our GLHD website under "Queries" for instruction and fee information.
