"Yes indeed, state archives are getting to be one of the genealogist's best friends, as they put more and more content online. If you haven't seen it already, definitely have a look at the Digital State Archives website."

Whoa! PaperofRecord used to be a free database. Now it is Google News Archive Search and requires a fee from what I could tell.

Hi David,

Can you help me with Freenewspaperarchives.com?

I'm not understanding why I can search a name in a newspaper and get a lot of results yet when I click on the links to open the pdf. file and hit the FIND feature for the specific surname I get 0 results back?? That is very frustrating!!

Thanks,
Vera
