Thursday, September 26, 2013 Search the world's historic newspaper archives

Here is website that is worth checking out. Elephind claims to search, in one fell swoop, over 1000 newspaper titles that are online…including the Library of Congress digital collection.

The home page gives you a search box prominently displayed, but it is worth clicking on the advanced search option where you can narrow your search by country, date range, and source. Take a minute to check the list of sources to get an idea of the depth of the search.

The hit list resulting from your search may be a bit daunting, but could uncover items you would be interested in. Each of the hits will have your search terms high lighted to aid you in separating the wheat from the chaff.

If you find hits from a particular source of interest to you, it may be worth your while to also search that source on your own to be sure something wasn’t overlooked. Search the world's historic newspaper archives
