Online Digital Newspaper Collections by State -- The Lists by State

Thanks for your patience with this post. I had a trip to Canada and Alaska in the middle of writing this series and then a move to Provo, Utah and got behind. Now to the list of online digital newspaper collections by states. Here is the list (finally) bear in mind that this list is not intended to be comprehensive. This list is now as complete as it can be.

Anyway, I doubt that a comprehensive list could be accurate because of the constant changes. The longer I looked for content the more I found. Some of the websites still had microfilm content, but if there was no other digital online content, I listed the microfilm repositories.

Remember that there may be collections of newspapers from any particular state in the general links I had in my previous post introducing the links to the state collections. See Online Digital Newspaper Collections by State -- The Lists Introduced. I suggest that most of the states are in the midst of finishing paper collections, expanding microfilm collections or digitizing existing collections. I have included some statewide efforts even though there is no evidence that the newspapers in question are available online as yet. There may be more than one link to the digital collections since I found that there were other valuable resources listed in different places.

By the way, here are a few more national or regional sources for newspapers online:

American Samoa

District of Columbia

  3. This site (bottom of the page) contains searchable newspaper indexes from 1736-1900 for Fredericksburg, Virginia: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~vacfrede/fbgdb.htm
    News from surrounding counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania & others could also be included in some of them.

  4. I recognize that you are listing the free sites, but you might indicate in the top list that there are a handful of pay sites which might have additional digitized newspapers, NewspaperArchive.com, GenealogyBank.com, Newspapers.com and Ancestry.com being the main four, I think.

    You might also state that local libraries often provide access to some of the paysites to those with a library card.

  5. Just noticed you mentioned GenealogyBank and NewspaperArchive in your previous post, as well as the value of checking out local libraries for their holding.
