The Mansfield-Richland County Public Library has partnered with the Mansfield Memorial Museum, The Ohio Genealogical Society and the Richland County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society to digitize newspapers from Richland County, Ohio. The project was made possible as a result of a $7,885 grant from the Gorman Foundation. Those looking to research the newspapers can access the content from anywhere; there is no membership or login required. This service is completely free to those interested.
The collection includes over 40,000 pages covering the years 1823-1923 and includes Mansfield newspapers in addition to newspapers from Bellville and Butler.
