Great interest for historic newspapers at the Genealogy Fair!

Last week the Nevada Digital Newspaper Project participated in the Genealogy Fair held at the Paseo Verde Library in Henderson, NV.

We are fascinated by the great interest in historic newspapers! The genealogy researches were eager to learn more about the newspaper project and how they can use Chronicling America website to perform cross-state search for their ancestors.

We noticed that most of the attendees expected that this service requires membership and subscription, so our team kept explaining that this is absolutely free service accessible 24/7 without any subscription, membership or library card. All researchers have to do is go to www.chroniclingamerica.loc.gov to get started!

Nevada Digital Newspaper Project is proud to be part of the nationwide historic newspapers digitization program and to contribute to the Chronicling America database with 200,000 pages of Nevada newspapers dating from 1863-1922.
