New Jersey Online Historical Newspapers Summary

New Jersey is among the states who do not need a central on-line repository for looking historic newspapers. A number of states use the Library of Congress Chronicling America website as their predominant central on-line website for looking outdated newspapers. New Jersey simply beginning including digitized titles to that website. The net newspaper titles can be found from a number of totally different websites, many free and a few require a subscription. Under is an inventory of the place the titles are saved and the hyperlink so that you could entry them. 

There are round 2,000 newspapers which were revealed within the Backyard State – definitely not all of them are searchable on-line. However there are fairly just a few which can be certainly out there. So go for it – discover your New Jersey ancestors and all of the fascinating articles that seize the tales of their lives. 

Please word that I’ve not all the time entered the dates which can be included within the collections, as I think they are going to change as extra objects are digitized. Additionally I think that a few of these hyperlinks could change over time – so if there’s a useless hyperlink – please use your favourite search engine to seek out their new location. 

(Up to date April 2022; just lately added hyperlinks are in BOLD)
