Historic Belleville Recorders Online

Search Belleville Recorders 1887-1923 online

Historic issues of the Belleville Recorder (previously the Sugar River Recorder) from 1887-1923 are now searchable online through the library's BadgerLink subscription.

These papers were digitized from our microfiche collection as part of a grant-funded project through the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium and WiLS (formerly Wisconsin Library Services). We hope that they will continue the project to add more issues in the future, but in the meantime you can always visit the library to view them on microfiche.
