In these days of difficult personal finances, I’ve been on the lookout for interesting free resources for genealogists. You might want to take note for the record that The Google + hangout is becoming increasingly popular and a very informational meeting place and I was very impressed by the amount of digitized newspapers for genealogical purposes that are now available online and searchable free of charge.

Kenneth R. Marks of The Ancestor Hunt has put this information on his blog. It’s truly must share information and includes an 18 minute video clip which provides some great instruction plus 5 important links. I lost track of time looking at the links and recommend them as a tremendous assets.

The 5 links to are listed below:

Historic American Newspapers – Library of Congress

Penn Libraries – Historical Newspapers Online

Lawson Research Services (Leslie Lawson) – Newspaper Links of Old

Online Historical Newspapers Website (Miriam Robbins)

Wikipedia Online Newspaper Archives
