NewspaperARCHIVE.com (www.newspaperarchive.com), the largest newspaper database available online, has partnered with World Vital Records Inc.'s Web sites (WorldVitalRecords.com and FamilyLink.com) in a unique way to provide increased access to a half billion records from newspapers ranging from 1759-1923.
'Historical newspapers contain valuable information about our ancestors, which may not have been preserved in any other form. By making these records easily accessible, we hope they can become a part of someone's family history,' said Jeff Kiley, General Manager, NewspaperARCHIVE.com.
The uniqueness of this partnership stems from the way in which World Vital Records, Inc. will extract vital record information from the newspapers and place it on its site.
'We wanted to have vital record information from early American newspapers. NewspaperARCHIVE.com has allowed us to extract this information from their newspapers that cover the first 160-years of their collection,' said Yvette Arts, Director, Content Acquisition, World Vital Records, Inc.
With this partnership, NewspaperARCHIVE.com will provide several million pages of vital record data (approximately a half-billion online records), which will be available for subscribers at WorldVitalRecords.com . . . ."
