19th Century Newspapers

Whether you're writing a history paper, or trying to do some genealogy work, the database 19th Century Newspapers may be just the tool you need. This database covers millions of articles from all over the United States for the 19th century.

This is an especially valuable source for Wisconsin and Milwaukee information. The database has articles from many different Wisconsin and Milwaukee newspapers including not only the Milwaukee Journal and the Milwaukee Sentinel, but also the Northwestern Recorder, the Wisconsin Temperance Journal, Yenowine's Illustrated News, and many more.

The database allows for searches to be narrowed down by newspaper, by date, or by states.

This powerful search tool can be accessed from home by City of Milwaukee library cardholders.
