More Ohio Papers on Chronicling America

Here's the latest news on the Ohio newspaper digitization project from Jenni Salamon at the Ohio History Connection. This should be about the end of the funded scanning but hopefully another round of Ohio newspapers can be added to this free Library of Congress web site in the future.

"I am pleased to announce that the following papers have been added to Chronicling America:

·         Celina Democrat, 1910-1918
·         Painesville Journal, 1871-1872

With this update, all of the content we have digitized as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program is now online—that’s about 114,000 for the 2012-2014 grant cycle, for a total of more than 318,000 pages!"

  1. I LOVE using newspapers to enhance my genealogical research! From a newspaper article, I discovered that my 2X great grandfather was considered quite the raconteur at his GAR meetings!
