February Addition: GenealogyBank Just Added New Content from 193 Titles!

Every day, GenealogyBank is working hard to digitize more newspapers and obituaries, expanding our collection to give you the largest newspaper archives for family history research available online. We just completed adding new content from 193 newspaper titles, vastly increasing our content coverage from coast to coast.

Here are some of the details about our most recent U.S. newspaper additions:

  • A total of 182 titles from 30 states, plus 7 newspapers from the District of Columbia and 4 national titles
  • As readers have been asking for, the emphasis this month has been on historical newspapers, including a number of very rare single-issue newspapers – many of them are the only known issues of the paper
  • All but 33 of these 193 titles added this month are newspapers added to GenealogyBank for the first time!
  • We’ve shown the newspaper issue date ranges in the list below so that you can determine if the newly added content is relevant to your personal genealogy research

Here is a list of the February additions. To see our newspaper archives’ entire title list of more than 11,000 newspapers, click here.
