Footnote.com: Free newspaper access ends soon

Footnote.com's free access to its complete historical newspaper collection will only last through the end of May.

Take this opportunity to see what you can find on your families of interest, the places they live in and their daily lives.

In addition to news stories, social announcements and obituaries, I also enjoy the advertisements which provide even more information about how people lived in those days, what they bought, what things cost.

Readers new to Footnote will need to register (free) and will then be able to download articles of interest. View the newspaper collections here for free through the end of the month.

Once you've seen what you can find, note that there is also a limited time 50% sale for subscriptions.

Its many collections are valuable to all researchers.

While the Holocaust Collection is of particular interest to Jewish genealogists, there is so much more to be examined.

As of today, there are some 65,585,666 historical documents on the site, and more are added frequently.
