Chicago Jewish Newspaper Online
- Chicago Jewish Newspaper Online
Digitized images of the Chicago Jewish newspaper, The Sentinel, are now
online at http://hannah.spertus.edu:8881/R covering the years 1911-1949. The
search engine includes an any-word index. When an image is displayed, the
words searched are highlighted for easy location of the information sought.
I was able to get the maiden name of a woman who married into the family
from a 1930 engagement announcement. The search engine is very quick, but
retrieving the actual page from the edition of the newspaper take a while
apparently because the edition is searched again to find the data.
I wish we could do this type of word search with the JHV project. Perhaps I
will talk with Logan again in August in Philly...
