  1. So glad to hear this! Can you also look at getting L’Araldo Italiano, from NYC? It is very hard to find. The NYC Public Library has the most complete microfilm record of this paper. Would be great to get this online and in searchable format. L’Araldo was a daily starting from the 1880’s.

  2. When are these Italian American newspapers going to hit the website? It is now the spring of 2014 and I don’t see the titles for New York listed.

  3. Tom Poirier – All of these titles are currently in process, being digitized and waiting for release.

    All the best –
    Tom
