Middleborough Gazette Index

Some of the Middleboro Gazette microfilm reels have been temporarily moved downstairs. You may ask for them at the reference desk, or at the main circulation desk if the reference librarian is unavailable. This includes all films for issues between 1986 and 2017.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

This resource provides a searchable index for the Middleborough Gazette for the years 1852 to 1868 and 1905 to 1982. Searches can be performed by key words including first and last family names, business names, subjects, and more.

The Gazette Index is an ongoing project and other years will continue to be added on a regular basis. Unfortunately, no copies of the Gazette are currently available for the years between 1868 and 1905.

Copies of Middleborough Gazette articles may be obtained through the Reference Department.

Microfilm Errors

During the course of indexing the Middleborough Gazette, we have found several instances of pages being out of order in the microfilm collection itself. This is an error beyond our control. We have made careful note of each page mistake in the Introduction to every 5-year segment. To avoid frustration and annoyance on the part of our readers, please check the Errata Notices to ascertain whether the particular items you are seeking are in the correct order or not. We apologize for this inconvenience.
