Want to search the local newspapers from only one state, city or town? It is easy to do that in GenealogyBank.
In the middle of GenealogyBank’s homepage is a list of all 50 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia. Simply pick the state you want to focus your genealogy research on.
In this example I will use Ohio. Once I click on the Ohio link, it brings me to a page listing all 131 Ohio newspapers currently in our online archives. The newspapers are divided into two main collections: Newspaper Archives and Recent Obituaries.
Click on the top link, Search Ohio Newspaper Archives (1801 – 1991), to search all of the back issues of our Ohio digital newspaper archives.
Use these search forms from the U.S. state newspaper archives to search newspapers from only the specific state you are researching your family history in.
Want to search newspapers at the city or town level?
That type of local newspaper search is also easy to do in GenealogyBank. Each state search page lists all the cities and towns in that state for which we have newspapers.
Simply click on the name of the city or town. In this example I will pick Cincinnati, OH.
Now you may search all of Cincinnati’s local newspapers as a group, or check the boxes to search only the newspapers that you select.
Use this approach to narrow down your search geographically when there is a specific state, city or town where you want to concentrate your genealogy research.
