Repository: Chronicling America

About

Chronicling America is a government sponsored, searchable, online database of digitized American historic newspapers. The project is produced by the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP), a collaborative effort between the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress.

The online database is free to use, and includes images. The images are indexed via OCR technology. If you can’t find what you are looking for via a keyword search, try browsing the pages. The computer may have misread an article.

A list of the digitized newspapers found on Chronicling America can be viewed here.

Chronicling America’s U.S. Newspaper Title Directory can be helpful in researching what newspapers existed in the location and time period of your ancestors. Known titles are listed regardless of whether or not the paper is currently digitized by the project.
