The Collin County Genealogical Society partnered with The University of North Texas' (UNT) Texas Digital Newspaper Program (http://tdnp.unt.edu/) to digitize and make available online to a worldwide audience the contents of six microfilm rolls of the McKinney, Texas newspaper, The Democrat, from the years 1884-1904 and one microfilm roll of incomplete runs of the Daily Gazette, Democrat, McKinney Examiner and McKinney Gazette (years ranging from 1880 to 1936). This is a total of 5047 newspaper pages whose content can then be found via search engines like Google or through direct searches free of charge at The Portal to Texas History Web site: texashistory.unt.edu/explore/collections/TDNP/browse/
