Oshkosh Vital Records Index | Oshkosh Public Library
Search for vital records as reported in Oshkosh Wisconsin newspapers from 1861 to the present. This index covers primarily those records published in the Oshkosh Northwestern newspaper. The Northwestern was founded as a weekly in 1861. From 1868 to 1909 both daily and weekly editions were printed. Since then, it has been a daily paper. While there have been many short-lived competitors, the Northwestern was the city's only newspaper for most of the 1900s.
