I'm told World Vital Records will soon have a major announcement adding newspapers to their collection.

Meanwhile, in Europe digitization of newspapers is proceeding, with free web access. The European Library has a list of electronic resources which includes newspapers from Austria, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, and Greece.

And in Canada?

Any ideas on how to get Ottawa Citizen and other now-defunct Ottawa papers digitized back to the start of their publication? It is a real shame that we don't have these available so have to search manually through microfilm.

I have a leather bound book containing original 1804 editions of the Waterford Gazette published by Horace H. Wadsworth. Is someone interested in the historic value of this book?
