  1. this is fantastic that you are making more newspapers available for genealogists to search.
    Have you considered adding papers from Puerto Rico? El mundo, el imparcial, la democracia ???
    These are no longer published and microfilms of them are available in some research libraries.
    The members of the hispanic genealogy society of NY, which I represent, would be infinitely grateful if you could do something like that. Our volunteers could help with indexing too.
    thanks very much,
    Jorge Camuñas

  2. Hola Jorge,
    Que buena idea.
    Déjame ver lo que puedo hacer.

    We are the only site with Hispanic newspapers online. In fact we just added another 48 newspapers from 8 States yesterday. I’ll post that list in the next few days.

    There were a dozen new Hispanic newspaper titles just from New York City!

    It’s a great day for genealogy.

    Please tell the members of your Hispanic Genealogical Society of NY – There’s a special “try it out” rate for our 2nd anniversary – let’s get your members to sign-up – and underscore the need for more Hispanic newspapers.

    Adelante –
    Onward,
    Tom

  3. Tom,

    I am enjoying all of the new newspapers (esp. historical) that you are adding the site. I think it is WONDERFUL to have these newspapers “at my fingertips”.

    That said, the increase in the number of newspapers is having a negative effect on my searches… making it increasingly difficult to isolate to a newspaper I would like to search thoroughly – primarily because the search options are restricted in a few ways:

    1) Please add a way to restrict the search to a particular newspaper – other sites do this, you display the information, so can it be easily added? I have tried the “keyword” option to enter the name of the newspaper but it is not effective in situations (like Texas) where you have a lot of newspapers and a “generic” named newspaper (“The Standard.)

    2) In conjunction to the above… allow us to easily browse newspapers by issue. One would no longer have to enter the name of the newspaper and a date range and “hope” that the OCR scanned the title correctly for every issue of the newspaper paper so he/she can access and view each page to double-check the OCR function. Additionally this would allow us to see what issues were “missing” much more easily.

    3) Lastly, this is not search related, but I believe very important. I don’t know about you… but while I am VERY familiar with the names of towns, etc. in my local area… when I begin a new area of research it takes some time to familiarize myself with all the names of the towns, etc… would it be possible to add the COUNTY to the location of the place in the newspaper listings? And while I am giving you my genealogybank.com Christmas list… can you add an option to search by state/county? (Okay, guess I made this search-related after all.)

    Let me emphasize again… I love genealogybank.com… I love newspapers… your site is very important to my research. I hope the above is taken in the vein of “helpful suggestions” and not as negative feedback.

    Thanks again for all that you do!

    Melissa
