Research in Historic Newspapers

A partnership between the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities called the National Digital Newspaper Program has released a new web site called Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers at http://www.loc.gov/chroniclingamerica/. You can read from 226,000 digitized pages from newspapers in California, the District of Columbia, Florida, Kenturcky, Utah and Virginia. The dates of coverage are 1900 to 1910. You can also search for information about newspapers published from 1690 to the present.
The National Digital Newspaper Program will continue the project over the next twenty years, to create a national digital repository of newspapers published between 1836 and 1922 from all of the states and territories of the U.S.
