Der Nord-Westen was a German-language newspaper published weekly on Thursdays in Manitowoc from 1855-1861, and, 1865 through 1909. Harold E. Bergman selected items deemed to be of genealogical interest and translated them from the German. Items selected include: deaths, obituaries, births, birthdays (where age is mentioned), marriages, marriage licenses, anniversaries, some social items (especially those clearly showing relationships), pensions, and most military service references.
