MyHeritage adds 982 million names in newspaper index

A press release from MyHeritage states “We are pleased to announce the publication of a massive new collection of 982 million names, extracted from our U.S. and Canadian historical newspaper collections” and reports there are more to come. These are from U.S. and Canadian newspapers. It shows the person’s name, a bit of text from the article, and the newspaper details. To learn more check the MyHeritage Blog and why the index was created. I’m off to do some more searching.


p.s. I did find some new to me mentions of relatives in Wisconsin and Illinois.
