For all my articles about newspaper research, just navigate to the Home Page of this site and browse, or enter "newspapers" in the search box. There are plenty of articles to read.
For my video tutorials, just navigate to my YouTube Channel, or the Tutorials page on this site.
What I would like to relate now, however is my list of the best free sites to find historical articles about your ancestors in newspapers. These are the first ones that I would use if I were starting out. They have been chosen not because of their interface - because some are better than others and some are not ideal. These are presented in no particular order. And remember that these are free sites only and you do not have to go to a library to access them.
- Elephind - over 55 million items (newspaper pages/articles) from several countries
- Library of Congress - Chronicling America - over 1,000 newspapers and almost 7 million pages from 36 states
- Google News Archive - over 2,500 newspapers
- Old Fulton NY Post Cards - over 23 million pages of New York State historical newspapers
- Trove - over 100 million articles from Australia
These are 5 of my very favorite LINK sites to online newspapers - again presented in no particular order:
Wikipedia List of Online Newspaper Archives
ICON Newspaper Digitization Projects
Penn Libraries - Historical Newspapers Online
Online Historical Newspapers Website (Miriam Robbins)
Lawson Research Services (Leslie Lawson) - Newspaper Links of Old
Happy Hunting and Good Luck!
