Genealogy Bank Newspaper Archives by State

For the past year and a half or so, Toni Pettinato has been posting about newspaper archives by state at the blog of my favorite newspaper subscription website, GenealogyBank. Since GenealogyBank has digitized historical newspapers and modern transcribed obituaries from every state in the union, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, there is plenty of information in each of these posts.

Below is the current list of links to the posts, alphabetically by state. I encourage you to check these out, and if any seem of interest, consider a subscription. You can choose a 30-day trial for $9.95, or choose a monthly ($19.95) or annual ($69.95) subscription. I have found their website easy to search and navigate, and download relevant articles and whole pages. I enjoy access to the most up-to-date Social Security Death Index online, as well as historical books and documents (non-newspapers). And, as always, you can read their informative blog anytime, for free, with tips on how to best search newspapers and locate information to help you in your genealogical research.
