Hard to find but free places where you can research genealogy on line, without having to pay. Your comments and feedback are welcome to any post.

About me: Jerry E. Reed
First and foremost, I am a seasoned voice talent and media/public relations specialist with many other interests. I have been helping businesses with their narrations, presentations, commercials, and more all of my adult life.

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.

Suffolk County Historic Newspapers - New York State

The newspapers available on this site, which is a service of the Suffolk County public libraries on Long Island New York, date back to 1839. The following newspapers are available:
The Corrector - currently available: 1839-1871
The Long Island Traveler - currently available: 1872-1898
Sag Harbor Express - currently available: 1885-1898
The Long Islander - currently available: 1839-1925
The Port Jefferson Echo - currently available: 1892-1931
South Side Signal - currently available: 1869-1879
Suffolk County News - currently available: 1888-1923

Browsing on the site seemed to go pretty fast. However, the search engine for specific words seemed a bit slow and at times not responsive. Check it out. You may have better luck than me.
