Genealogy News Corral, Nov. 26-30
Posted by Beth


  • Ancestry.com announces the launch of Newspapers.com, a new web site featuring more than 800 US newspapers dating from the late 1700s to the early 2000s. With more than 25 million pages, Newspapers.com offers historical and present-day newspapers ranging from The New York Times to small town and local newspapers.
The site's search capabilities are specifically designed for newspapers, enabling users to search by keywords, location, time period and newspaper name. A one-year subscription to Newspapers.com is $79.95 for subscribers and $39.95 for Ancestry.com or Fold3.com members.
There currently are no plans to remove any newspaper content from Ancestry.com. Most of the newspapers on the new site (more than 15 million of the 25 million pages) are not part of Ancestry.com records. Ancestry.com is actively producing millions of new pages per month from microfilm, and is working with newspaper publishers and microfilm owners to increase the number of newspaper titles in its production pipeline for Newspapers.com.


  • The Federation of Genealogical Societies received a $250,000 donation from FamilySearch for its War of 1812 "Preserve the Pensions" Digitization Fund, designed to digitally preserve and index the War of 1812 pension and bounty land records.
