Attention all of you researchers , genealogists and just plain curious types, a colleague brought to my attention As they describe themselves:, the largest historical newspaper database online, contains tens of millions of newspaper pages from 1759 to present. Every newspaper in the archive is fully searchable by keyword and date, making it easy for you to quickly explore historical content.

Take a look and browse around, and if you like what you see, you might find it appropriate to pay for their full access services. I did some searching on a distant relative of mine in the Special Archive Collection on Pro Baseball and the results were interesting enough that I myself may have to pony up some money and do some serious [or seriously fun] research.
