Welcome to the Online Historical Newspapers Website

I'm thrilled and honored to announce that Family Tree Magazine has selected the Online Historical Newspapers Website as one of their 101 Best Websites of 2017!

Have you ever wished you could find links to all the online historical newspapers in one place? A place where they were listed by county and city so you could find the newspapers your ancestors read? This is the purpose of the Online Historical Newspapers Website. It is meant to be used as an aid to genealogists, historians, and other researchers.

There's a lot of work that needs to be done to this site, and with all the digitized newspapers becoming available, it's likely this project will be a continuous work-in-progress!

My goal is to first list all I can find for the United States and then go on to add newspapers for other countries. There will be also lists of resources, articles, and ideas of where to find offline historical newspapers.

These links include both free sites and subscription database websites.
