Information contained in this database has been obtained from the files of the Carver County Historical Society Library; specifically, the newspaper index (in the future to include scrapbooks, family histories etc...).  As with any information source, errors, inconsistencies, and accuracy in spelling and content are unavoidable.  Therefore, we suggest checking for alternate spellings when researching individual names or places.  We have tried to include alternatives whenever possible.

Some examples of alternate spellings include:
   Miller/Mueller    Bergman/Bergmann    Blocker/Plocher    Hemming/Henning

The Carver County Historical Society is grateful to Southwest Newspapers for their generous financial support of the newspaper indexing project.

Library Fees:

  • The fee for CCHS staff to do your research for you is $25.00 per hour for staff time.
    The fee is $2.00 per article that you find in our online index and have us print for you for each single sided sheet. There is a $3.00 processing fee per group for up to 15 copies. There can be additional fees added for greater amounts requested per group. (Example: 16–30 copies = +$3.00, etc.)
    If you come to the CCHS and do the research yourself, the fee is 25 cents per printed sheet/page. We are here to guide you when doing your own. Thank you for considering us in assisting you with your family research.
  • These fees do not apply to researchers visiting the library who do not request additional research assistance.

What are these fees used for? Library fees help offset a portion of the costs of running the library including staff time, purchasing new materials, and maintenance of the microfilm reader.
