Colorado Genealogy in Newspaper Archives

The great Colorado Gold Rush of 1858 and Silver Boom of 1878 brought many settlers into the newly acquired territory. Maybe your ancestors were part of this tide of prospectors seeking their fortune? Or perhaps they helped lead the political charge to make Colorado the second state to grant universal suffrage to women? Find the answers to these questions and more by searching our database of digital newspaper archives predating Colorado’s statehood.

Newspaper archives help reveal the events, big and small, that shaped our ancestor’s lives. Were they members of the world's second-largest mining camp? Did they help lay William F. Cody, Buffalo Bill, to rest on Look Out Mountain?
