Cedar Rapids, Iowa (PRWEB) December 26, 2008
NewspaperARCHIVE.com, the world's largest online newspaper archive, has launched a major upgrade to their website, introducing a 'Topics' section with hundreds of articles and covering major events over 250 years of history. The new set of web pages, accessible via top-level navigation and available free without a subscription, includes a subject directory to more than 300 topics, each with a variety of articles.
"We have created an enormous repository of historic knowledge, covering major events in world history over the past three centuries," said Stephen Carr, Writer for NewspaperARCHIVE.com. "These articles give a unique perspective into history, looking at events both as they were reported in newspapers and through time."
Each article contains information on its subject, as well as links to digitized historical newspaper pages about the subject. Articles cover everything from U.S. President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address (http://www.newspaperarchive.com/ContentListbyTopic.aspx?c=Abraham%20Lincoln) to sightings of UFOs (http://www.newspaperarchive.com/ContentListbyTopic.aspx?c=Odds%20and%20Ends#2554) to the 2008 Presidential Election (http://www.newspaperarchive.com/ContentListbyTopic.aspx?c=Current%20Events).
The articles can be accessed at http://www.newspaperarchive.com. They are available for free and do not require a membership to read or use.
NewspaperARCHIVE.com will continue to add free content on a daily basis, and expects to host thousands of articles by early 2009. The company is also accepting authored articles from writers, genealogists, and anyone interested in submitting historic articles, life stories, or other research.
