Picture

Alabama is one of the states that does not have a central online repository for searching historical newspapers. Several states use the Library of Congress Chronicling America site as their main central online site for searching old newspapers. Alabama does have a few online newspapers available on that site. Alabama currently has its online availability from different websites. Many are free and some require a subscription. Below is a list of where the titles are stored and the link so that you can access them.

There are over 2.000 newspapers that have been published in the Yellowhammer State. But there are quite a few that are indeed available. So go for it – find your Alabama ancestors and all the interesting articles that capture the stories of their lives.Please note that I have not always entered the dates that are included in the collections, as I suspect they will change as more items are digitized. Also I suspect that some of these links may change over time – so if there is a dead link – please use your favorite search engine to find their new location. (Updated August, 2018; recently added links are in BOLD)
