      Historical Jewish Press Website
      Rose Feldman of the Israel Genealogy Research Association reports that an
      additional 61,533 pages of content has been added to the Historical Jewish
      Press website bringing the total number of pages digitized and indexed to
      nearly 800,000. It includes the major newspaper Ma'ariv through 1987. The
      English version of the site is located at
      http://www.jpress.org.il/view-english.asp. There are French and Hebrew
      versions.

      Locating the search engine is not obvious. From the home page click "Search
      by Language." Then click a specific language to search newspapers written in
      the selected language. I found a number of obituaries for Israeli family
      members at the site. Hebrew-language newspapers must be searched using the
      Hebrew alphabet. If your keyboard does not support Hebrew, use the Stephen
      P. Morse site at http://stevemorse.org/hebrew/eng2heb.html to convert the
      characters.

      Historical Jewish Press is a project of the National Library and Tel Aviv
      University contains digitized images of 31 Jewish newspapers mostly
      published in Israel and Eretz Israel. Other countries include Austria,
      Egypt, France, Hungary, Morocco, Poland, Prussia and czarist Russia. A list
      of newspapers is located at
      http://www.jpress.org.il/cross-section/allpub-en.asp.
