Alabama Online Historical Newspapers Summary – The Ancestor Hunt

Great stuff from The Ancestor Hunt …

Alabama is one of the states that does not have a central online repository for searching historical newspapers. Several states use the Library of Congress Chronicling America site as their main central online site for searching old newspapers. Alabama does have 4 online newspapers available on that site but all are from neighboring states. Alabama currently has its online availability from different websites. Many are free and many require a subscription. Below is a list of where the titles are stored and the link so that you can access them.

There are over 2.000 newspapers that have been published in the Yellowhammer State – certainly not all of them are searchable online – not by a long shot. But there are quite a few that are indeed available. So go for it – find your Alabama ancestors and all the interesting articles that capture the stories of their lives.
