Posted by janis6 in updates.

Access NewspaperARCHIVE is a constantly growing database containing newspapers from the United States and abroad spanning the late 1700’s to the present.  This database is a primary resource.  “NewspaperARCHIVE.com is adding newspaper pages faster than you can search them – with one newspaper page added every second – that’s over 80,000 images a day, or about 2.5 million per second.”  It is the world’s largest archive of online searchable newspapers.  Searches can be limited by locality and year.  Try selecting a particular event in history on a given date and you will see the vast reservoir of information that this database contains.
