Elephind is a search engine for digitized historical newspapers. Currently, users are able to search 14 different source libraries (including the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America project), 1000+ titles, and over 1 million newspapers. Papers range in date from 1803 to 2012, so genealogists might find it especially helpful.
