Welcome to the Online Historical Newspapers blog. Here is where I will be posting updates and additions to my new website, the Online Historical Newspapers Website. 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 papers 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. 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.

Please note that I am not linking to transcribed newspapers, clippings, or obituary sites. My focus is on whole digitized newspapers.

Thanks for dropping by and when you're done checking out the Online Historical Newspapers Website, don't forget to check out my Online Historical Directories Website as well!

Happy Hunting!

  1. Miriam - I am SOOOO excited to see your new site. I love hunting through old newspapers for obits and other people articles. I'm saving up for a subscription - not sure which site yet. I do have an Ancestry subscription.
    This site is going to be a big help to me. Let me know how I can help.
