“NewspaperArchive has been like finding a pot of gold for me. My family is from West Virginia, and I am amazed at all the articles I’ve found. I also use NewspaperArchive for genealogy and have found lots of obituaries and other amazing articles.”
“I use NewspaperArchive almost daily. Initially, I purchased it to do research for my family genealogy. I have found numerous articles relating to family members that provided information I didn't know. I am also putting together a program for our historical society using old articles, advertisements, pictures, and other items from NewspaperArchive.”
“NewspaperArchive was the only site that had copies of my old hometown newspaper. I have become so wrapped up in our local history there have been some days I have literally spent an entire day perusing issue after issue in our local newspaper, and I love it. Thank you, NewspaperArchive, for helping take my newfound hobby to the next level.”
“This is the best money I’ve spent!” I started using NewspaperArchive to look up information about my dad, who was a jockey. Now I look up everything! I love to look up articles on people–the way older articles are written is much more vivid than today. Even if I search for a person and know it's not the right one, I read those articles anyway.”
