The Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County is your best source for research on the Vindicator as their staff has created some unique indexes not available elsewhere. In addition to the indexes Maag Library owns, the Main Library at the corner of Wick and Rayen Avenues (across the street from YSU’s Jones Hall) has coverage for 1921-1930, 1933-1938, and limited coverage for 1939 and 1940. They are creating an on-going database index for the Vindy from 2001 forward, as well as a Death records database.
Excellent information on current and recent issues may be researched at the paper’s website. http://www.vindy.com
Vindicator Digitialization Progress! The Vindicator embarked on a digitization project of all of its past issues. The paper participated in the Google News Archive project that was terminated after many Vindicator issues from 1869 to 2009 were digitized. Check their website to keep track of developments. Be mindful of mistakes like this.
