Only a portion of the Sabbath Recorders are currently available online. The years 1844 - 1888 were scanned from microfilm and can be found for free at You'll need to spend a few minutes reading the Help Section for the best way to search specific papers.

But since that span doesn't include all the years you're searching, it may be best to just contact Hinkle Library at Alfred State College. They have the Sabbath Recorder from 1844 - 1888 on the orginal microfilm as well as the paper copy for 1912. The staff will be able to assist you. Hinkle Library's phone number is 607-587-4313, email:

The Seventh Day Baptist Historical Society is currently undergoing a scanning project of the Sabbath Recorder. When they're done the paper will be available, but for a fee.

Hope this helps!
