I am also a genealogist, a
n avid photographer, and artisan bread baker.
My genealogy interest began before personal computers were a family "must have." Personal genealogy computer research has blossomed in the past 15 years. It wasn't long before someone decided that they could charge for information that should be free and in the public domain. I have always been frustrated by that. Now, thousands and thousands of pages of useful facts are coming on line daily in free-to-access digital archives located all over the world. So, I'm constantly searching for new sources of free on line material. Blog updates follow this section and all links are added to the master list below the new posts.
Updates are posted when
I discover another new source or when something I have already reviewed gets a major update.
Have fun and enjoy.
Note: if you find a link no longer works, please let me know so I can research and update it.

Coloradio Historic Newspapers

(Revised and updated Jan 18, 2011) Ok, I admit it, I have this thing for historic newspapers. I find them fascinating to read and a wonderful source of information about people and what was going on in the communities where they lived. I just found this resource that I could have used fifteen years ago when I traveled to Boulder, Colorado just to get access to the Boulder Daily Camera to find a gr gr uncle. Now historic issues of that paper and about 148 more from both sides of the Rockies are available through this link for Colorado Historic Newspapers.
Here's the link:

This would be wonderful if I could open any article. I got 74 hits of my search but no instructions how to read the actual item.

Hope you found your answer. I did a search on the Boulder Daily Camera. The results shows five articles for my search term with a snippet view. I just clicked on the image and the section of the newspaper was displayed with the search term highlighted.

This domain has apparently lapsed.
