Google Quadruples Historical Newspaper Archive
Posted by Diane

Google announced last week that it has quadrupled its searchable archive of historical news articles, many of which are free to access.

Additions include the Halifax Gazette (dating as far back as 1753, as shown below), Sydney Morning Herald, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Village Voice, the Manila Standard, The Nation (from Thailand) and others.



When you search, you can specify keywords  or phrases (such as an ancestor's name or an event) to include or exclude, provide a date range, and opt to get articles written a particular language or from a certain newspaper.

You also can choose whether to see only articles that are free to access. (For matching articles in subscription-based sites, you'll usually get to see the first few sentences.)

If you do a timeline search, you’ll get a timeline at the top of your results showing the numbers of matching articles by year. Adjust the timeline to see articles from a different time span.

Google doesn't offer the option to download or save articles, but you can generate a link to share the article with friends.

Read more on the Google News Blog and Techcrunch.

google is great, but I cant fathom why we arent able to download? Looks as if that will diminish googles' usefulness..

Fast results but, how does one it enlarge a section to a readable size?

Great resource, however, depending on the area of the country, very few "free" articles may be available. For example, when searching for family members that settled in early California, none of the articles found (and there were many), were free.

I was able to find a free article in the New York Times using the Google historical archive search and download it as a .pdf, which I was then able to save. You can always do a "print screen" to save anything you want. To do it, have showing on your screen the portion of text you want to save, then press the "Alt" key and "Prt Sc" key, then paste the article onto a document page. If you need more height on the page to see more text, hit the F11 key. To undo it, just hit F11 again. I hope this was helpful to someone.

Sorry. You have to have funny faces and words, you can't just have words. It is a powerful thing, and I think that's why it's hard for people to imagine that women can do that, be that powerful. Help me! Please help find sites for: Spray foam insulation fire rated. I found only this - used spray foam Insulation equipment. Found additional organisation alignment. Is an rubber splitting where berm coating is supported to control building for rates a open ash? With love :-(, Rori from Guinea-Bissau.
