by admin on March 17, 2010

Newspaper Archives is where you may read the historical stories as they happened, from the 1700′s until modern times in the world’s largest online collection of old newspaper articles.

The website at describes in detail what you will be able to locate with a subscription to this largest newspaper archive in the country.

Billions of articles from old newspapers around the U.S. makes exploring history and genealogy an enjoyable and easy task.  You will be able to read, just as your ancestors did, about all of the historical events which may include; Revolutionary War stories, the Treaty of Paris in 1783, The Gettysburg Address in 1863, The Sinking of the Titanic in 1912, the First Moon Walk of the Apollo 11 mission in 1969, and all stories in between.

If you are researching your family tree genealogy there is no better spot on the internet that you will be able to find more information in one place.  These digitized newspapers are fully word searchable and if you are looking for death notices or obituaries you will be able to locate them as they were published.

Just a few years ago you would have to drive to a library in a city that your family had resided in and then start searching these old newspapers on microfilm, and you would have to scroll through them page by page.

Now those same microfilms have been run through a digital scanner and the images have had the text converted to machine readable format with optical character recognition (OCR) software.  This allows you to search by single words, or word phrases or even boolean search operands.

You will discover fascinating news in the archived newspapers that are hundreds of years old.  Bookmark and return often for more details.

Could you confirm if it would be possible to check football results and attendances your service. I hold all the final match results for English & Scottish Football leagues and cups but am looking for a source where I can get information on those half-time scores and attendances prior to 1970. Generally they were produced in the national press, usually on a Sunday prior to the introduction of mid week games. Please advise. The detail which I currently hold is confidential and I would appreciate a similar response. Thanks

What I can confirm is that these digitized newspapers are the full issues. So if the scores that you want were published, then they will be listed. The best thing to do is to sign up for a free trial, and if what you want is not listed, just cancel.
