scary google is also useful

Google To Archive 244 Years Of Newspaper Articles Online.

Newspapers are one of the most valuable resources for a historical novelist, but they are notoriously hard to find. If Google can really put up 244 years of newspaper articles from papers all over the country, those of us obsessed with the past can dance the tarantella in the streets. As will genealogists, and generally nosy people. Like me.

And still: do they have to be everywhere?
