Gang, I got the Springfield stuff from GenealogyBank.com. Springfield, IL was recently added. Pretty similar in scope to NewspaperArchives.  Best site, IMHO, is Newspapers.com.  Archives still has the most content so far, but Newspapers.com has the ability to clip articles and paste them directly to other applications.

I have been working daily on the next Crusher Record Book. I have about 4,500 results including many that cannot be found online. Fortunately, the Wisconsin Historical Society in Madison, WI has the second largest collection of newspapers on microfilm in the country, so a lot of results have come from research there. (Thanks to Loren Olsen, who put me on to this years ago). I've also gone to Libertyville and Waukegan, IL to get results from those cities as well as Round Lake Park in the '50s.

 I'm going to cram in as much match detail as I can into the current record book. As of today, I have typed in 1949 to 1966 and that's about 70 pages, with only a scattering of articles and photos so far. I'm hoping I can print the next record book on creatspace. If not, I'll try some other options. If those don't work, I can always print and bind it myself. I'd like to have it done by summer either way.
