The Western New York Index was created by the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library System and printed from 1983-1996. It indexed news, feature articles and reviews appearing in the city edition of the Buffalo News; it also indexed articles that appeared in the 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. This collection was digitized on behalf of the Western New York Library Resources Council (WNYLRC) by the University at Buffalo. The images include searchable text.
