As part of a Google news archive partnership project many of our older printed editions have been scanned using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. You can try searches using simple keywords to locate past stories and then view the scanned newspaper pages on your computer as if they were on a microfilm reader.
Click this Google News Archive Search link to start your pre-Website era search. If the Google Advanced Search Screen is not visible, click the down arrow on the right side of the search box to open.
HELPFUL HINT: In the LOCATION field you should place the word "Prescott" if you want to search the Courier even when it published under different names. You may also have better results if you also leave the SOURCE field blank. Try increasing the results to 100 to view more listings.
