Roland Record Now Available Online!

The Roland Historical Society has made the Roland Record viewable and searchable online for free.  Their microfilms of the Roland Record were digitized by Newspaper Archives and thanks to the Roland Historical Society are freely available.  You can see and search the newspaper here.

The archives begin with the February 28, 1895 issue (shown at the left, click on the picture and then click it again to see a larger version) and continue through March 6, 1975 for a total of 27,367 pages.  Pages can be viewed and saved in PDF format.

These Roland newspapers contain many items from other Story County locations.  For example, Cambridge is mentioned 1,295 times, most of the mentions implying Cambridge, Iowa.

Thank you to the Roland Historical Society for making this great resource available!
