Seeking to access American newspapers published between 1836 and 1922? Try exploring the Chronicling America database which is permanently maintained by the Library of Congress. The National Digital Newspaper Program offers free access to millions of digitized historic American newspaper pages.
Yet another database that you may consider exploring is the U.S. Newspaper Directory. The objective of this directory is to facilitate access to select American newspapers published between 1690-present that have not yet been digitized. This database is also permanently maintained by the Library of Congress.
May the haunting season begin!
