Historic Newspapers

Historic newspapers are a great way to find information about the past. They have feature stories, society news, school and community announcements, local news and legal notices. Even the commercial advertisements give a sense of what it was like to live in earlier times. Providing a rich source of information for historians, genealogists, students and the general public, historic newspapers are worth perusing!

Some of New Mexico's historic newspapers can be found online at Chronicling America (http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/) and New Mexico's Digital Collections (http://econtent.unm.edu).

Visit your local library to access more historic newspapers online and on microfilm.
