The Western New York Index
The Western New York Index was created by the Buffalo & Erie County Library System and printed from 1983-1996. It indexed news, features, articles and reviews appearing in the city edition of the Buffalo News, Buffalo Spree, Business First, Western New York Magazine, and the WNY Genealogical Society Journal. Each volume covers one individual year, and also includes a separate Personal Names section.
A print copy has been in the collection of the Western New York Library Resources Council since that time, and is still used by researchers. This collection was digitized on behalf of WNYLRC by the University at Buffalo. The images include searchable text.
