The Commercial Record has served the Saugatuck-Douglas, Michigan community since 1868. This on-line archive is the result of long-term efforts by the following local organizations:
The project members thank the current publisher of the Commercial Record, Cheryl Kaechele, for allowing us to photograph the newsprint archive.
- The Saugatuck-Douglas District Library
- The Friends of Saugatuck-Douglas Library
- The Saugatuck-Douglas Historical Society
- The Saugatuck-Douglas Public Schools

There are two ways to search the archive: by content or by year.
Currently the years 1868 through
have been digitized (1881 recently added, we are working on the 1960s, 1872-76 still missing). Note that 1968 will be the final year digitized until we secure funding for converting more microfilm to digital form. Each year that we add will cost a few hundred dollars in addition to our volunteer effort.
