The Basics of Online Genealogy Research for Beginners and Beyond

With Elephind.com it is now possible for family historians, genealogists, and researchers to search historic digitized newspaper archives from around the globe. Elephind.com is much like Google, Bing, or other search engines but is focused on only historical, digitized newspapers. It enables you to search, for free, across many newspaper sites simultaneously, rather than having to visit each site separately.

Find a partial list of digitized newspapers for your area and where to find them.

Important tools for searching free and paid sites. See especially Immigration and Census Tools. Morse has done a lot of the work for you!
