The Arkansas Gazette was founded by William Woodruff in 1819 and it was our state paper of record until it was acquired by the Arkansas Democrat in 1991 (and thereafter became the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette).
Shannon Henderson, a librarian at Arkansas Tech University at Russellville, compiled subject indexes to the Arkansas Gazette covering 1819 through 1894. After his death, Cathy Barnes took up the project and is compiling indexes of special interest to genealogists in our popular on-going series.

Oscar G. Russell created indexes to the deaths mentioned in the Arkansas Gazette, listing the deceased person's name, age, and place of death, along with the newspaper date, page and column. His indexes cover 1914-1929, 1960, and 1990-2005.

The Arkansas Gazette is a treasure-trove for genealogists. Lucy Marion Reaves wrote a genealogy column in it from 1933 through 1942 and it was filled with family history. We've made those available, too!
