What's anyone's opinion on Ancestry.com's Historical Newspaper Collection?
For example, it's no secret that I'm looking for the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION.
This database supposedly has this:
<A HREF="http://www.ancestry.com/search/rectype/inddbs/6329.htm">Atlanta Constitution (Atlanta, GA) 1875, 1888, 1903, 1919</A> 1875-1919
<A HREF="http://www.ancestry.com/search/rectype/inddbs/6330.htm">Atlanta Constitution, The (Atlanta, Georgia) (Pre-1890)</A> - Updated 1869-1885
<A HREF="http://www.ancestry.com/search/rectype/inddbs/6468.htm">Atlanta Constitution, The (Atlanta, Georgia), 1890-1899</A> - Updated 1890-1899
<A HREF="http://www.ancestry.com/search/rectype/inddbs/6417.htm">Atlanta Constitution, The (Atlanta, Georgia), 1900-1909</A> 1900-1909
<A HREF="http://www.ancestry.com/search/rectype/inddbs/6418.htm">Atlanta Constitution, The (Atlanta, Georgia), 1910-1919</A> - Updated 1910-1919
<A HREF="http://www.ancestry.com/search/rectype/inddbs/6419.htm">Atlanta Constitution, The (Atlanta, Georgia), 1920-present</A> 1920-1955
Is this full text of the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, from 1875-1955? Could I
give someone "pimiento cheese sandwiches" right now?
There's much more. Does it really have full text of the OSHKOSH DAILY
NORTHWESTERN (Oshkosh, Wisconsin) from 1878-1973? Can I look up Wisconsin
How about the WEEKLY STANDARD (Raleigh, North Carolina), from 1859-1864,
for "Tar Heel"?
Really want a Syracuse salt potato that will beat DARE? How about the
SYRACUSE DAILY COURIER AND UNION, 1865-1965?
Want to check "I'm from Missouri--show me"? How about the SEDALIA COUNTRY
DEMOCRAT (Sedalia, Missouri), 1875-1825?
Love those brats? How about the SHEBOYGAN PRESS (Sheboygan, Wisconsin),
Need the secrets of Rhode Island snail salad? How about the NEWPORT DAILY
NEWS (Newport, Rhode Island), 1950-1990?
New Mexico tacos? How about the DEMING HEADLIGHT (Deming, New Mexico),
West Virginia pepperoni rolls? How about the CHARLESTON DAILY MAIL
(Charleston, West Virginia), 1920-1946?
The NYPL gets AncestryPlus, an advanced form of ancestry.com from the Gale
Group. I didn't look because I didn't realize it had a newspaper collection.
All for $9.95 a month?
