Digital newspaper archives…

Many collectors of historic newspapers often collect issues based upon desired content.  If the content is relatively common or is within a clearly defined (and small) time frame, finding issues to collect may not be too difficult.  However, if the desired content appeared within issues only occasionally and/or over large spans of time, finding desired issues can be quite difficult.  For example, if someone is looking for issues with Moon landing content, since the dates are precise, the task of location issues can be easy.  In contrast, if what is being collected are pre-1800 mentions of Georgia, the task can be quite daunting.

However, with the continued growth of the internet also comes ever increasing access to digital archives of newspapers from throughout the world.  While some are only available for a fee, the quantity of free archives continues to soar.  Wikipedia has begun to assemble a list of both types.  It can be viewed at:
