11.6 million Nordic Newspaper Pages Added To

 I received this information from Daniel Horiwitz, the genealogy expert at MyHeritage.


We're excited to announce the addition of 11.6 million new Nordic newspaper pages to, the innovative website for historical newspapers, by MyHeritage. enables genealogists, researchers, and history enthusiasts to search, save, and share articles about people and events throughout history.

The new content includes historical local, regional and national newspapers, periodicals and gazettes from Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands, with articles dating back to 1666, but mostly from the 19th century.

They are incredibly useful for anyone researching Nordic roots: we’ve gathered them from various sources into one place, making it easier than ever to search through them.

This does not affect my objective analysis of MyHeritage products.  I am a subscriber to Family Tree Webinars and love it.
