Nebraska Online Historical Newspapers Summary

 

Nebraska is one of the states that does has a single central online state repository for searching historical newspapers. Several states use the Library of Congress Chronicling America site as their main central online site for searching old newspapers and currently Nebraska has several newspapers available on that site. There are many free online newspapers also 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 almost 4,000 newspapers that have been published in the Cornhusker State – certainly not all of them are searchable online. But there are several that are indeed available. So go for it – find your Nebraska 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. Thank you for the list of Nebraska papers! I have a branch of the extended family that lived in Red Cloud. It is nice to know that the paper is now available on-line. 🙂

  2. I love this. Thank you for finding all this information.
    I put a link in the website space provided for the Newspaper Database offered by the Wayne City Library. The library site is a page from the Wayne City site.
    It includes the Wayne Herald 1888-present as well as other Wayne Newspapers.

    1. Thanks so much Kathy for the info regarding Wayne City. I will add it to the Nebraska link list son.

  3. This is amazing! I have found so much on my family through this all the way back to the 1860s! Thank you for compiling this.

  4. I would love to see the newspapers online for Sheridan County, Nebraska. Do you know if and when they might be completed?

    1. Would also love to see the Sheridan County newspapers on-line. I have personally researched the old big, heavy newspaper books at the Sheridan County Museum in Rushville and the newspaper office in Gordon. So they are there, just need to be digitized I guess.

  5. Thank you for the updates! Having the Sidney Telegraph searchable and online was the best New Years gift! I couldn’t step away when I found out! Many brick walls have been broken.

  6. There are also some Western Nebraska newspapers available at the following web site, but there is a membership requirement, particularly Scottsbluff and Sioux counties for sure.
    https://wnfrhc.org/

  7. Would love to know if or when any newspapers from Thayer county would be available. Especially interested in Hebron, and surrounding areas i.e. Gilead. Thanks

    1. Jan,
      I don’t know when they might be available. I just track the links to online collections. I don’t get involved in the digitizing of newspapers for individual collections.

    1. Thanks Laurene. Changes will be made. It was in Other Free Sites because it is a single title collection. I’ll move it. That change may not be made until the next update
