Find Your Family History in Nevada Newspaper Archives

Dive into our collection of Nevada newspaper archives and learn about the events and records of your ancestor’s daily lives in Nevada.

Did they settle in the newly acquired lands following the U.S. victory in the Mexican-American War? Discover the answers to these and more in local Nevada newspapers.

Get to know your family members by perusing the public records of the day. Much of Nevada communities that were not Mormon settlements were mining towns. Did your family members come to mine the Comstock Lode during the Great Nevada Silver Boom? Or maybe they instead sought and found their providence in the gambling halls of the mining towns, which would later give birth to Las Vegas? Over the years, the local newspapers recorded all the important happenings during these times. Now you can learn about the national events that shaped your family's fortunes.
