      Hi Lisa,

      The site does state it is an on-going project and will include the entire nation (eventually).

      I wonder if the column on the left, "Ask LC Newspaper and Current Periodicals Librarian", is a
      tool where they will research and respond about any and all (country wide) publications. It is
      worth a shot.

      The site gives one an option to sign up for updates as they occur.

      Hi Mickey,

      I have found quite a few articles from the Vermont and other newspapers in this collection. Curious that there are no papers from any of the other New England States.

      One could also try, through the National Endowment for the Humanities:

      One thing you can do without a subscription is to look at the newspapers they carry. If they cover the timeframe and areas you are interested, then

      you can make a better decision about subscribing. I think newsbank is a subscription database for libraries not individuals. They have older papers, but

      it all depends on what the library has decided to subscribe to.

      Newbank does go back before 2000. It all depends on the area you are looking in and how many of those papers they have scanned in. I do agree however the newspaperarchieves.com does have a lot more of the older papers and it is worth the price if you have the time to use it a lot. I got a ton of stuff there on my PA relatives but eventually cancelled my subscription for a time to get caught up on other things. I do plan to re-subscribe eventually.
