Cedar Rapids, Iowa (PRWEB) January 22, 2009
NewspaperARCHIVE.com, the world's largest online newspaper archive, has launched a storefront featuring genealogy resources, history books, and other research tools. The store is integrated into the existing NewspaperARCHIVE.com store, providing visitors with a single place to find historic reproductions of newspaper pages, newspaper collections on compact disc, gift memberships, as well as the new Amazon store offerings.
"We are the premier website for primary-source history," said Dave Stoddard, Director of Marketing for NewspaperARCHIVE.com. "It only makes sense that we also provide some of the best secondary resources, such as biographies, genealogy how-to books, and history texts. This empowers our users to conduct effective research and find the really great pieces of history contained in our newspaper pages."
The new store is available at http://www.newspaperarchive.com/Store.aspx.
NewspaperARCHIVE.com will continue to add new products to the store, and has plans to integrate hundreds of hand-picked high quality newspaper images detailing such important events in recent history as Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon, and the fall of the Berlin Wall.
In 1999, Heritage Microfilm launched the brand NewspaperARCHIVE.com, the world's largest historical newspaper database online. NewspaperARCHIVE.com contains tens of millions of newspaper pages from 1759 to present, spanning almost 3,000 newspaper titles and 762 cities. Every newspaper in the archive is fully searchable by keyword and date making it easy to quickly explore historical content.
