Google Newspaper Archive

Not sure if this is a new thing or that I am a bit slow. (I suspect the latter)

I stumbled onto this terrific archive of old newspapers. You can search it using text searches too.

Google News Archive Search

Being a Victorian, I have mainly been looking at The Age but lots of other newspapers to read.

I found my birth notice, and the advertisement for when I applied for my current job (1981!)

Anyway, thought it might be of interest.

Wow, 37000 copies of the Syd Morn Herald scanned since 1830, that would take a while ; )

The Sidney Herald from Montana, has been incorrectly entered as The Sydney Herald"

How does one advise Google of that?

I see my Grandfather's newspaper from the Twenties hasn't been scanned as yet. I want to read one of them.

I also noticed the SUN-HERALD appearing under the Sydney Morning Herald index.

The Sun-Herald is the Sunday edition of the SMH.
