Do you have a favorite search? Bookmark it!

As you plan your research – genealogists often find that they are actively searching the newspapers for one state, city or a specific newspaper. You may speed up your research by bookmarking the newspaper or location you want to repeatedly search.

TIP: Say you are researching family lines in Philadelphia and that you expect to repeat a search for Philadelphia newspapers or only the Philadelphia Inquirer. Now you can bookmark that search page and with one click from your favorites list begin searching immediately.

Here’s how you do that
As you narrow your search in the Historical Newspapers move through your options, narrowing your search to the state, city or newspaper you want to search:

The Historical Newspapers – All 50 States
Select just Pennsylvania newspapers
Select just Philadelphia newspapers
Select specific newspaper(s)

At any point “save” the search page you want to repeat in the future to your favorites.
Then the next time you want to search those same newspapers simply click and the targeted search page will come right up for you.

Here are some examples you may use:
Search Philadelphia Newspapers – Click Here

Search only the (Philadelphia) Public Ledger – Click Here

Search only the Philadelphia Inquirer – Click Here

You can make as many quick links as you need.
One click and you can begin searching.

Let us know what you find!
