Searchable Archive of Historical Newspapers

PaperofRecord.com is a very useful Canadian genealogical resource.  To quote the webpage: “Conceived by electronic publishing and web pioneer, R.J. (Bob) Huggins PaperofRecord.com® is a Global pioneer of searchable newspaper image documents presented in their original published form.  The Toronto Star (circulation 650,000) became the first newspaper in the world to have its entire history from 1892 to present, digitized for the world to see and search.”

Newspapers from all across Canada AND other countries (USA, Mexico, etc) have been scanned and put into the database.  It is a free to join.
