The Great River Regional Library serving St. Cloud, Minnesota has two indexes online that will be of interest to those whose ancestors lived there between 1928 and 2008.
There is an obituary index and a news article index. The former is searchable by name, and the latter by key word. Note when you enter your terms, that the search is exact.
The results are extractions from the articles, but a link at the top of the page allows you to order the article from the library.
