Online Historical Newspapers Website

A little announcement to you, my readers of another new website I've started, the Online Historical Newspapers Website. Like the Online Historical Directories Website, you'll find links digitized historical newspapers online available for free or through subscription. The site is and will continue to be a work in progress, as so many newspapers continue to be digitized and added to the web. My first goal is to get the newspapers listed at the Library of Congress's Chronicling America project. I'm adding other free digitized newspapers found at state archives and university websites, and also those at subscription websites, such as GenealogyBank, NewspaperARCHIVES, Ancestry, Footnote, and WorldVitalRecords. I will not be linking to transcribed articles or obituaries, but to whole digitized newspapers only!

If you have a favorite digitized newspaper database, please drop me an email and let me know so I can add it to my site. And like the directories site blog, there is a corresponding blog for the newspapers site to keep you updated of changes and additions. Please add the site and the blog to your list of resources!
