Collin County Texas Newspapers Available at Portal to Texas History Web Site


The digitized and searchable Collin County newspapers from the 1860s-1930s are available for FREE on the Portal to Texas History Web site.

The Collin County Genealogical Society partnered with The University of North Texas' (UNT) "Texas Digital Newspaper Program” in digitizing the 1880-1930 newspapers from the best available microfilm copies obtainable. This project was primarily funded by a $4,000 grant from the Collin County Historical Commission with the remainder coming from the Collin County Genealogical Society.

UNT used another grant to also digitize the McKinney Messenger newspaper from 1860-1879.

There are thirteen digitized Collin County Texas newspaper titles:

The Democrat, The McKinney Gazette, The McKinney Examiner, The Daily Courier, The Daily Gazette, The Collin County Mercury, The Lion Roar, The Semi Weekly Courier, The McKinney Weekly Democrat-Gazette, The McKinney Advocate, The Southern Jerseyite, The Weekly Democrat-Gazette and the McKinney Messenger.
