No one website will have digital images of every newspaper you need and whether a specific site is helpful depends upon your personal research interests. Our suggestions here are meant to get you started. I’m not intending to provide a comprehensive list, but the sites listed, along with the suggestions, will get you on your way to locating digital images of newspapers you need–if they are online.
Some websites with links to specific newspapers:
- Wikipedia list of online newspaper archives
- Newspaper links from the Ancestor Hunt
- Library of Congress’ Chronicling America newspaper images
- Old Fulton New York Postcards
To see what might have been published try:
- Library of Congress’ Newspaper Directory
- searching the card catalog at WorldCat–use city/town as part of your search term
Reach out to locals. The local library (city, town, county, etc.) may have links to newspapers on their website (a Google search for “yourlocation public library” should find its webpage). The local historical/genealogical society may have information on local newspapers on their website as well
(a Google search for “yourlocation genealogy society” should find its webpage). There may be localized groups on Facebook that could also provide some direction.
Remember–every newspaper published is not yet available digitally.
