The York County Library has selectively indexed the local newspapers for articles of interest to genealogists and local historians. Topics include events; historic homes and buildings; businesses; schools; churches; street, road and historic district names; obituaries; and stories of prominent citizens. This is an index and does not contain the text of the articles.
The News and Obituary Index is drawn from the microfilm and clipping files of York County newspapers that are held in the Local History Collection of the York County Library, 138 E. Black St., Rock Hill, SC. Generally, this is an index and does not include the text of the obituary. Some of the articles from the clipping file were microfilmed in the late 1970s, digitized and uploaded to the Internet in 2007-08. A small percentage of these articles contains text of obituaries and generally falls between the years of 1940 and 1980. But they are not all inclusive. In addition to the obituaries, there may be articles about prominent residents.
