The Wyoming Newspaper Project is a website with all the newspapers printed in Wyoming between 1849 and 1922.
The Family History Library has not acquired copies of Wyoming newspapers. The library has copies of a few publications that contain abstracts of vital information printed in newspapers. Genealogical and historical periodicals also publish some obituaries and other extracts from early newspapers.
The Wyoming State Archives at http://wyoarchives.state.wy.us/, the Wyoming State Library at http://www-wsl.state.wy.us/, and other major libraries in Wyoming have helpful collections of newspapers. The following guides can help you locate Wyoming newspapers:
