Local Newspapers

Newspapers play an important role in genealogy and local history research. We have several resources to help you find local newspapers and articles.

To begin, search our obituary index for Glenview-area obituaries. You can also find local articles about specific topics, businesses, or people in our newspaper clipping file located in the Genealogy & Local History Room.

For more in-depth research, consult our online databases or browse our microfilm collection.
