Jewish Newspapers and their archives
Newspapers and their archives are a valuable resource for genealogists. One can derive a wealth of information from the social notices that were common in community newspapers of the past, as well as from detailed obituaries. If you are very lucky there may even be an articles about one of your ancestors!
This page provides links to archives of both community and regular Jewish newspapers from all over the world. Most are historical. Languages include English, French, German, Hebrew, Ladino, Polish and Yiddish. The page is in three parts: Canadian, American and international papers. The links are provided by Cheryl Rimer, a member, who gave a talk on this subject. New links will be added from time-to-time.
