NewspaperARCHIVE includes fully searchable newspaper pages from more than 400 cities and towns—from The Washington Post to the Stevens Point Gazette (see full title list). An excellent tool to research genealogy, history, culture and newsworthy events in a local context. Years of coverage vary, but some newspapers go back as far as the 1700s and include titles from the U.S., Canada, China (North China Herald), and the United Kingdom. Pages are reproduced in PDF format. (Updates vary)
