Collin County Newspapers from the 1880s-1930s

Digitized and searchable Collin County newspapers from the 1880s-1930s are now available on the Portal to Texas History website, and more are being added. The Collin County Genealogical Society partnered with The University of North Texas' Texas Digital Newspaper Program in digitizing these newspapers from the best available microfilm copies obtainable. This project has been primarily funded by a $4,000 grant from the Collin County Historical Commission with the remainder coming from the Collin County Genealogical Society.

There are twelve newspaper titles:
  • The Collin County Mercury
  • The Daily Courier
  • The Daily Gazette
  • The Democrat
  • The Lion Roar
  • The McKinney Advocate 
  • The McKinney Examiner
  • The McKinney Gazette
  • The McKinney Weekly Democrat-Gazette
  • The Semi Weekly Courier
  • The Southern Jerseyite
  • The Weekly Democrat-Gazette
