This week’s Wonderbase at WorldVitalRecords.com is a series of 70 newspapers from Alabama, California, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and West Virginia, containing 21 million names. Fifty of the newspapers will be launched today, and the other 20 will be launched on Wednesday.
These newspapers come from NewspaperARCHIVE , a leading provider of historical newspaper content. NewspaperARCHIVE has the largest historical newspaper database online, containing tens of millions of newspaper pages from 1759 to present. NewspaperARCHIVE, through a partnership with FamilyLink.com, has provided a subset of that database to WorldVitalRecords.com.
This week’s launch includes sixteen different newspaper archives from Des Moines, Iowa. Fourteen of the archives come from Moberly, Missouri. Other cities on the list include Anniston, Alabama (3); Woodland, California (1); Rock Valley, Iowa (2); Benton Harbor, Michigan (2); Hamilton, Ohio (7); Xenia, Ohio (2); Indiana, Pennsylvania (2); Oil City, Pennsylvania (2); Abilene, Texas (5); Brownsville, Texas (2); San Antonio, Texas (4); Victoria, Texas (4); Beckley, West Virginia (3); and Fayetteville, West Virginia (1).
As always, these U.S. databases are fully indexed and will be free for ten days.
