During the course of the Hangout, which lasted about an hour, we discussed 8 different online sites that have repositories available for historic and old newspaper research. The included:
- Newspaper Archive
- California Digital Newspaper Collection
- Genealogy Bank
- Historic American Newspapers - Library of Congress
- Google News
One of the important takeaways for the participants and a site that I often forget myself is the Library of Congress' list of all the US Newspapers and where they are held - either in libraries, universities etc. This is of course for offline research which is important since only a fraction of all newspapers are online.
This link from the Library of Congress of the "US Newspaper Directory from 1690 - Present" is extremely helpful.
If you want to find where all the newspapers are - at least offline - this is definitely the place to go.
