The Germaine Truth News

Germaine Truth header

The Germaine Truth was established in 1848, when 25-year-old Will Applegate printed the first one-page broadsheets on a letter press he had transported by wagon all the way from Missouri. All the news that’s Germaine.

This archive is the start of a years-long project of digitizing the newspaper for the Wilbur County Library. Many of the issues have been destroyed by flood, mold, and plain old time. But it is a record of what is remaining.

We have begun with the most recent times and will eventually work our way back to the beginning.

What you will find here:

Newspaper Issues have been sorted by year, beginning in 2007. There is an index at the beginning of each page to make it easy to find what you are looking for.
