Search and find
Thode says Google Books’ German site is the most extensive digitizer of old German newspapers. Bound newspapers are digitized right along with books. In search results, look for matches with words that are common in newspaper titles, such as Zeitung (“newspaper”) and Blatt (“paper” or “page”). Another key site, ZEFYS (Zeitungsinformationssystem), has newspapers from Prussia, especially official gazettes, and from the former East Germany.
In 2015, Ancestry.com launched the IrishNewspapers.com subscription website, which hosts 39 newspapers from Ireland and Northern Ireland dating from 1738 to 1980. Some of the papers here also are on Ancestry.com.
