New Jersey Digitized Historic Newspaper Project and Resources


The State of New Jersey joined the National Digital Newspaper Program with their first funding award in 2016. The state project is busily digitizing historical newspapers and have started populating Chronicling America‘s collection with New Jersey newspapers.

The New Jersey Digital Newspaper Project has just created a project resources page that has an abundance of useful information about the state project as well as a number of additional resources (including a map and downloadable directory of all New Jersey online newspapers, both free and subscription). The resources can be used to inform yourself about New Jersey newspapers, both online and otherwise.

If you are interested in New jersey historical newspapers, I would encourage you to visit the State Library’s New Jersey Digitized Historic Newspapers resources page.


Thank you for visiting The Ancestor Hunt!
