Florida Online Historical Newspapers Summary

Florida has a sizable state-wide free online collection for searching historical newspapers. Many states use the Library of Congress Chronicling America site as their main central online site for searching old newspapers and currently, Florida has quite a few newspapers also available on that site. There are free online newspapers available on other sites and there are collections available on subscription sites. Below is a list of where the titles are stored and the link so that you can access them. 

There are over 2,300 newspapers that have been published in the Sunshine State – certainly not all of them are searchable online. But there are several that are indeed available. So go for it – find your Florida ancestors and all the interesting articles that capture the stories of their lives. 

Please note that I have not always entered the dates that are included in the collections, as I suspect they will change as more items are digitized. Also I suspect that some of these links may change over time – so if there is a dead link – please use your favorite search engine to find their new location.

  1. I grew up in Hialeah, FL during the 50s. There was a small new paper called “The Home News.” If possible, I’d like to know how I can research and get copies of issues of that news paper. Can you help?
    Thank you!!
