There is a U.S. Newspaper Archives collection at with over 5,350 newspaper publications and over 120 million newspaper pages.  This collection is from the NewspaperARCHIVE collection.  It is a significant addition to the FindMyPast services.

All record collections from all areas (United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia/New Zealand and the United States) are listed on  There is a section for Canada, but there no collections in that section yet.

As you can see, has quite a few of the most common and most used record collections available, but by no means all of the available collections.  The benefit for me is the United Kingdom record collections which are very extensive.  I look forward to the Canadian record collections when they become available.
