African American newspapers added to GenealogyBank.com's searchable database

(January 22, 2010) GenealogyBank, a leading online provider of newspapers for family history research, announced that it will be adding over 280 fully-searchable African-American newspapers with coverage from 1827 to 1999. GenealogyBank released the first 61 newspapers in this new series earlier this month, including coverage from 20 states.

"These newspapers are packed with genealogical and historical details of the African-American experience you simply can't find in other online sources," says Tom Kemp, NewsBank's Director of Genealogy. "Making this robust and often rare content available for everyone to use helps all Americans discover the inspiring stories of our forefathers who paved the way for a better, more diverse America."
 
The African-American newspaper collection is created from the most extensive African-American newspaper archives in the United Sates -- those of the Wisconsin Historical Society, Kansas State Historical Society and Library of Congress. African-American newspapers currently available in GenealogyBank include:
* Savannah Tribune (GA)
* Chicago Metro News (IL)
* Negro Star (KS)
* Plain Dealer (KS)
* Milwaukee Star (WI)
* and many more

An easy-to-use interface and search tools help users locate obituaries, marriage records, advertisements, hometown news articles, editorials, illustrations and much more.

"The initial release features millions of family history records from across the nation," adds Kemp. "GenealogyBank will continue to expand this collection by adding hundreds of additional newspapers in the upcoming months." Search African-American Newspapers now!
