Minnesota Historical Society’s Minnesota Digital Newspaper Hub has made available a free, searchable archive of several dozen papers from around Minnesota, including the Caledonia Argus.

The Argus archive dates from Volume 9 in 1888 through 1922, with most years being complete.  It is a good source of information on families east of Spring Grove, with birth, marriage and death announcements and obituaries, but also property sales general news items. Since Caledonia is the county seat, the Argus archive also includes news on legal and government-related matters, such as naturalization, political campaigns, lawsuits, etc., which includes much of the Norwegian Ridge area.
