New BoAP Addition: The Nauvoo Neighbor

This summer BYU student Braden Johnson did some work for BoAP and we announce now that the Nauvoo Neighbor, a Nauvoo newspaper published between 1843 and 1845 will soon be available on the BoAP website for your reading pleasure. This is a great example of newsprint from the period and in addition to the pdf scans there are a couple of companion indices including a topical index for article content, etc. All thanks to Braden. Enjoy. We’ll have it up in a week or so. Look on the home page ( for the link next week. If you find these useful, please give us a shout out in your work.

Dale R. Broadhurst’s transcripts for the Neighbor are available here.

    We are ever in your debt. It’s been ridiculously painful to read this paper to date.

    I’ve read a handful of books about the Nauvoo period but no periodicals. What’s a good way for a total novice to read something like the Nauvoo Neighbor? Chronologically? By topic? What might I look for and how can I enhance what I learn? Thanks for your efforts and Braden’s too. I really enjoy your blog.

      The Neighbor is so short it’s just fun to read it straight through. There will be a couple if indices with it, so if you want to read topically, you can. It’s a great slice of life in Nauvoo.
