I just signed up for a seven-day trial of Newspapers.com which is an archive of newspapers from the 1700s to the 2000s. Of course, it doesn’t include every newspaper ever published in the United States, or every page of the newspapers it does cover, but I think I can use it in my work, and it’s fun to be able to view old newspapers from my computer. It costs about $150 a year so, unless I can find a way to persuade myself that it’s worth it during my trial period, I might not keep it, but it is interesting. You can search by keyword, area, dates, or specific newspapers, and probably a lot of ways that I haven’t figured out yet. It’s owned by the same company that has Ancestry.com.
