These treasures can be found either via online searches or by browsing microfilm and/or newsprint at libraries and archives.
On this website, I have written profusely about researching old newspapers, and have also kept readers informed as to online links that can be accessed to find ancestor articles - mostly for the U.S. and Canada, but from time to time, links to collections from all over the world.
I don't pass judgment on the features and quality of these online collections, because I leave that up to the reader to decide.
But in the interest of informing readers about collections that I feel are noteworthy, I will be highlighting some of these collections in this series.
Although some of the titles have short runs (less than 10 issues), with 900 total titles available there is likely to be some titles that match the area in the state that you are looking for.
The distinguishing feature of this collection for me is the software. After you have performed a search using your selected keywords, you immediately have the ability to hone in on the search results by selecting county, language, decade, and/or sub-collection. This is accomplished without performing an additional search, thereby saving the user time. This is a very nice capability. Also, one can search for maps, books, and photos, which are part of the Portal's collections.
This is why I am choosing this collection as the "Online Historical Newspaper Collection of the Day".
