Chronicling America

Monday, February 4th, 2013 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

This is an amazing site that is dedicated to chronicling America’s historic newspapers.

As historian, newspapers offer up fascinating primary source material in many ways. What did they consider worth reporting about? What did they shuffle to the innermost pages? How was the paper organized? All of these provide interesting cultural cues and facts about time gone by. 

The main bulk of the papers on the site that have been digitized span the time from 1836 to 1922. When you land on the main page, you’ll automatically be on the right page to search through them or you can choose to browse them by clicking on the papers that are displayed. If you don’t like one of the three being shown, use the arrows to either side to select from a different set of three. 

Your other browsing option is to click the button that reads US Newspaper Archive 1690-Present. This will whisk you away to a search engine that you can use to search for keywords or titles in those papers, or you can use the alphabetical menu to select by the letter. 

This site is an amazing resource! I hope you enjoy checking out the newspapers of yesteryear as much as I did!
