I am in the process of creating indices to the microfilms copies of The Boyne Citizen. Each index covers one microfilm and is a linked GEDCOM file, showing all births, deaths, marriages, and divorces, as well as family relationships and any other information I felt was of genealogical value. Each GEDCOM is accompanied by two text files, one a listing in alphabetic order and the other in chronological order. It is possible to get a great deal of information directly from the file, but it can also be used to quickly find the issue where the event is recorded. Each PC-format 3 1/2 inch diskette costs $3 (plus $2 postage and handling if applicable).

The first microfilm of the Boyne Citizen covers from January 1887 to June 1892. The index consists of 1341 names.

The second microfilm covers the time span from July 1892 through December 1892, January 1894 through December 1895, and January 1901 to July 1901. The years 1893, 1896, 1897, 1898, 1899, and 1900 are missing and no known copies exist. It consists of 1020 names.

The third microfilm covers Aug 1901-1902, 1904, Jan-June 1906 (minus missing issues). The index consists of 2995 names.

The fourth microfilm covers June 1906 - July 1908. It consists of 2711 names.

The fifth microfilm covers July 1908-1909. I started working on it on October 1997.

Hudson Cemetery and Maple Hill Cemetery (Clarion) have been indexed. They have 50 and about 450 records respectively. They are in dBase IV (DBF) format. For those persons without a database program, a shareware DBF browser will be included on the diskette.
