Using Google News to help your research project

Some of the most fascinating information you can unearth during any historical research project can be found through Google News.

Over the past several months, Google News has added several links to historical newspapers. Type in your search terms, then look to the left side of the page. Usually, you will be able to find a list of years. If you are researching Emmett Till, for instance, you will be able to click on 1955 and find newspaper articles written at the time of the murder of Emmett Till and the trial of Roy Bryant and E. W. Milam.
