Notes by Cliff Lamere:
The Hudson Evening Register was probably published five or more days per week. For the year 1912, Margaret selected 13 days which had a large number of social notes (for many issues, the notes were few). Most social notes, but not all, were transcribed for those 13 dates. Sometimes a note will say that something happened last Tuesday, so here is a list of the newspapers showing the day of the week:
Apr 19 Wednesday
May 9 Thursday
May 22 Wednesday
Jun 26 Wednesday
Jul 25 Thursday
Jul 31 Wednesday
Aug 29 Thursday
Sep 18 Wednesday
Sep 25 Wednesday
Oct 16 Wednesday
Oct 30 Wednesday
Oct 19 Tuesday
When you browse from one date to the next, you will notice a change of the font color.
