Title: Read About it Here in Old Newspapers

Snippet: Do you love reading newspapers? Then you’re going to love Google News Archives ( This site contains thousands of issues of newspapers from all over North America.

The links to the newspapers are organised in alphabetical order on the home page. If you don’t know the names of all the newspapers for a particular community, you might want to research them first because the archives lists publication names only, no locations. Certain titles give away their location, such as New Brunswick Reporter (473 issues: Nov 1844 – Jul 1886), while others are well-known in Atlantic Canada, such as Acadian Recorder (128 issues: Nov 1854 – 1861).
