Fimble File of Newspaper Clippings

The Fimble File of Newspaper Clippings is a collection of three scrapbooks containing obituary notices and other clippings from the Victoria Advocate and other area newspapers. The 3 scrapbooks cover the period from 1901 to about 1944. Sidney Weisiger acquired the scrapbooks from a local re-sale shop. He spent many hours indexing every name mentioned in every clipped article. The original index has been transcribed and enhanced by VRHC staff and is available here for searching. In the search box below, type the name of the person you wish to search. Consider alternate spellings, i.e. Alnoch and Allnoch, or Lorenso and Lorenzo. You may also truncate the name, for example, typing "Ander" will retrieve listings for Anderson or Andersen.
