Welcome to The Modesto Bee's online archive service.
The Modesto Bee, under various names and ownership, has been published daily since 1884. Locating information from this long history
of service to the community can be exciting, but sometimes challenging.
Our online collection contains thousands of articles and photographs from around the community and around the world.
Although we add hundreds of information sources every day of the year, the extreme size of the material prevents us from leaving
it online indefinitely. If you are not able to find something in our current online collection, we offer two extended search tools to
locate the information you are seeking.

from years past. There is a modest convenience charge for the service.

secure server, or you can sign up after you find the article you want. If you encounter trouble during your

Please note, our long-term archives do not contain stories created or distributed by wire services
such as The Associated Press. The archives contain only articles created by or for The Modesto Bee.
