An Introduction to Chronicling America
Much of our newspaper information is based on data taken from the Chronicling America website. We have taken that information and organized it based on the geography of our gazetteer. For each community or cemetery, we show the newspapers that were published in the surrounding area. If they are available, we also provide links to help you locate a holding library where a copy might be found and when available, digitized copies that can be found online.
Chronicling America has been created by the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP), which is a partnership between The Library of Congress (LOC) and The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The goal of this partnership is to give public access to the newspapers that have been published through-out the history of the United States. The information about these newspapers is maintained in an internet accessable database with titles and descriptive information.
Although many issues have already been scanned, the majority of the newspapers have not. This is an on-going effort by Chronicling America, with new pages being added and made available on-line. As new issues are scanned, we will add those links.
