So go for it - find your Newfoundland and Labrador ancestors and all the interesting articles that capture the stories of their lives.
Please note that I have not always entered the dates that are included in the collections, as I suspect they will change as more items are digitized. Also I suspect that some of these links may change over time - so if there is a dead link - please use your favorite search engine to find their new location.

Links to Follow:
There are several ways to keep up with new collections as they are digitized and made available online. Three of my favorites:
- Historical Canadian Newspapers Online from Bowling Green State University
- Can Genealogy Historical Newspapers
You might want to check out the Memorial University's Digital Archives Initiative site from time to time to see what is available online or otherwise.
Please note - even more may be available via a local or provincial library where a library card is required. And of course there is always microfilm for those that have not been made available online as yet.
Good luck and happy hunting!
