The Story of Grand Rapids, by Z.Z. Lydens
The book, The Story of Grand Rapids was edited by Z. Z. Lydens (Grand
Rapids, Michigan: Kregel Publications, 1966). A subject card file,
citing primarily newspaper articles was prepared during the project and
serves as an indirect index to Grand Rapids newspapers. When a name or
subject appears on these cards, it often leads to interesting and useful
information that will enhance family history.
index serves not only to give information alphabetically but also to see
subjects listed in more than one place. The Search Committee of Western
Michigan Genealogical Society will copy these newspaper articles as part
of their hourly search requests described elsewhere on this WMGS site.
