After ten years, 44 boxes, and 46,391 entries later, the index cards used by Z. Z. Lydens to create the Story of Grand Rapids, published in 1966, are now online. This index can be used to find articles in early newspapers, such as the Evening Press and Evening Leader. Later, these papers became the Grand Rapids Press. This index covers roughly 1880s through 1956. Thank you to all the staff who participated in this mammoth project! It is a job well done!!
