Milwaukee County, Wisconsin Newspapers

Milwaukee Sentinel

The Milwaukee Sentinel newspaper is accessible to genealogical researchers in two ways:

  • The Milwaukee Public Library has an excellent card file index to death notices, obituaries, marriages and other events mentioned in the Milwaukee Sentinel newspaper from 1837-1890.

    The card index is not available online.  Contact the library’s Periodicals Department and ask for a librarian to check the index card file. If an obituary or mention of a marriage or other event exists, you can then request a copy of that newspaper article through the library’s Ditto Copy Service.
