Thousands of Old Newspaper Back Issues Added Online Every Day!

It is exciting to see the fast pace of more back issues being digitized and added to GenealogyBank’s online historical newspaper archives. Checking in with our production team I found that just this week they were adding another 3,000 back issues from the Boston Herald (Boston, Massachusetts), 477 issues from the Greensboro Daily News (Greensboro, North Carolina), and 81 back issues from the Richmond Times Dispatch (Richmond, Virginia).

In fact GenealogyBank adds content from over 3,000 newspapers every day. That’s amazing growth, providing you some of the most comprehensive U.S. newspaper coverage available anywhere to research your family history.

Here is a list of just a handful of the old newspaper back issues added online today:
