Finding Newspaper Web Sites

You can find almost any print newspaper in the world at the RefDesk site - http://www.refdesk.com/paper.html.

They have newspapers by state and country, plus the Top 100 US newspapers, and those with searchable archives. Of course, the searchable Archives are only for recent years - not every year of publication. For some of them, you have to sign up for a free account in order to use them.

These sites are useful for local news and sports, plus obituaries and death notices.

I love this website, and have been using it for a number of years, now. With so many of my family living back east, I use it to find obituaries whenever I hear of a family member's passing.

I didn't know about this one, but I will check it out. Thanks for the tip. I have used 50 States News before though. http://www.50states.com/news/
