Huron Shores Genealogical Society  Newspaper Archive Welcome to the Searchable Issues of the Tawas Herald from January 1884 to December 1952
To browse the files click on THIS LINK. They are organized by decade, year, month, and then the issues themselves. For example:  To view the March, 1924 issues, you click on “20th Century”, then "1920s", then "1924", then "March" and then click on the issue for that month you want to view. To search for specific words within the text use the following instructions.  (Note:  You will get results for non-newspaper files.  You can simply ignore them.) 1.  Open your favorite search engine (Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo or Yahoo) in a new window. 2.  In the search bar of your search engine page type the following: filetype:pdf    (Do not hit “enter” yet.) 3. Put a single space after "filetype:pdf" and type in the word(s) you want to search for.  (For example,  if you want to search for “Tawas City”, the text in the search box should display like this: filetype:pdf Tawas City).  Now you can hit “enter”. 4. You will then be presented with a list of search results that show all the files with your search word(s) in our website.  The title of each search result will be the title and location of the file, and some text from the file. 5.  When you want to look at a file that has those terms, click on it and it will load the file inside your web browser.  6.  In your web brower press the CTRL key and the F key on your keyboard at the same time and this will pop up a search box. 7.  Inside that search box, type in the search terms one more time. This will highlight every time there's a matching word.  You can then either scroll up or down to find it or you can click on the up or down arrows in the search box and it'll take you to each highlighted area                                               .
