The purpose of the Guide, originally compiled by Donald E. Oehlerts and revised in 2017 by James L. Hansen, is to allow the researcher to determine: (a) whether a newspaper was published in a particular area at a particular time, and (b) to determine whether files of that paper are available for research. It lists all newspapers published in Wisconsin from December, 1833 to December, 2004. Publications appearing in newspaper format, but which were primarily organs of agrarian organizations, educational institutions, religious groups, or trade unions, have been excluded. Following Oehlerts' original order, newspapers are listed alphabetically: (1) by county, (2) by locality, and (3) by masthead title. Papers are listed under the current or last place of publication and in conformity with contemporary geographical designation. Under a given locality, papers are arranged alphabetically by the scheme established by Winifred Gregory in her American Newspapers, 1821-1936, the listing being governed by the first significant word of the masthead title, ignoring the place and frequency of publication. For example, under the city of Ashland, the order would be: Ashland Journal, Weekly Leader, and Ashland Mirror. Cross references have been made to variant places of publication and variant titles. Newspapers that transferred publication into, or outside of, the state have been listed under the last place of issue in Wisconsin. All newspapers published in a language other than English have been so noted, as have those published primarily for Black and Native-American audiences. Names of newspaper editors have not been included in this edition. The 1958 edition includes many editors for the period of its coverage, and a detailed listing of editors and publishers for early Wisconsin newspapers is included in James L. Hansen, Wisconsin Newspapers, 1833-1850 (Madison, State Historical Society of Wisconsin, 1978). If the Wisconsin Historical Society holds any issues, those holdings are indicated in the record. Virtually all the files have been microfilmed and are, as of this writing, available to researchers on interlibrary loan. No attempt has been made to identify those files available in various online sources, primarily in resources available by subscription (usually in larger libraries). The only exception is several papers whose files, available on the subscription resource NewspaperArchive, extend beyond those held by the Wisconsin Historical Society.

This database covers everything from birth, death, marriage and divorce records to phonebooks, school and landowner records, all from the former Austro-Hungarian province of Galicia, which today is part of eastern Poland and western Ukraine. Although Gesher Galicia's focus is researching Jewish roots in this region, the diverse community sources of information in this database also contain names that span all the ethnic and religious groups who lived in the area, so not everyone listed in this database will necessarily be Jewish.
