March 24, 2008 (NAPLES, FL) - GenealogyBank.com, a leading online resource for family history research, announced that it has begun to supplement its historical newspaper collection with content from Hispanic American Newspapers. In addition to millions of historical newspaper articles, modern obituaries, military reports, books and other essential genealogical documents, researchers can now enjoy access to hundreds of fully searchable Spanish-language and bilingual newspapers - a boon to researchers of Hispanic heritage.
"Hispanic American Newspapers offers a unique opportunity for anyone who'd like to learn more about their Hispanic origins," says Tom Kemp, Genealogy Director for NewsBank, inc.
The initial release of Hispanic American Newspapers includes titles such as Cosmopolita, Defensor del Pueblo, Continental and more than a dozen others. With new titles added monthly, the collection will eventually span from 1808 to 1980, providing genealogists with access to the largest collection of Spanish-language newspapers printed in the United States during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Available online for the first time, these previously inaccessible newspapers enable individuals with Hispanic ancestry to search obituaries, illustrations and photographs, marriage and birth announcements and much more.
