Gove County Kansas
Local newspapers offer a wealth of information and insight into the lives of our ancestors. The "news" includes the comings and goings of residents: who visited whom, farm events like cattle purchases, field work, out of town visitors, the occasional birth or death, marriage, sicknesses, departures, arrivals, special celebrations, tragic accidents, etc. The reading is interesting because it contains such everyday news. Most newspaper death notices or obituaries are located on our Gove County Obituaries page.
