Newspaper Links

To help you with finding historical newspaper articles about your ancestors, below are thousands of free historical newspaper links.

Please note that any article that includes links to free or other newspaper research sites are accurate at the time of publication. Collection updates may occur (as well as dead links) in the future, both of which are out of my control. It is not the intention of the author (me) to maintain a complete or constantly updated list for all time. In other words, please don’t yell at me if this is not 100% complete and/or accurate forever. I do update the lists from time to time, however.

As of October 2022, there are approximately 78,700 links to free newspapers on these lists
