Sandra McNeely has volunteered to label the digital images with dates. Thank you Sandra. :)

Completeness of collection

What date ranges are realistically available? Are there efforts to track down others? I may have a lead to some but I would like to find out what dates/editions are around/on microfilm/fiche to continue the 'hunt'.

Additionally, did the Giddings Star produce any Wendish type in the beginning?

We have an inventory of the editions that we do not have. I have never heard of any Wendish printing being done by the Giddings Star. My intuition would say that it is very unlikely that an English language paper would ever print anything in Wendish.
