Awesome research tool! Search/view newspapers from 1836-1922

Library of Congress Digital Newspaper Search (1836-1922)

I happened to start reading the New York Daily Tribune from August 23rd, 1942 and my mind was kind of blown. They published complete supreme court decisions, trials, and treaties. In this one edition, you can buy some coal for $4.25 a ton, learn how to produce "artificial cold", start a career in whaling, or read about the "Destiny of Man":

In the next days edition, you can read about the scientific virtues of the divining rod (no joke) :

If your family has been in the country before 1922, try searching for your last name in the state they were in. I found a story about a male relative of mine. The headline reads, "He could not sleep". The subtitle, "John xxxx therefore opened fire upon the woman who disturbed his slumbers." Never been a morning person, and I've always wondered why :)

While cleaning up my Garage

...on my property, I came across magazines used as insulation on the walls of the old garage (I call it "the barn")....

Most were from the 1930's and between the advertisements (some in color) for Dodge automobiles were articles chronicling the political turmoil in Europe.
Quotes from Winston Churchill, Benito Mussolini, Adolph Hitler.
Sad to say, they were all bug-rodent-infested...and stank with mildew, so I just tossed them all after removal.
It was an interesting trip down "memory lane" though.

My home was built in 1921...it's an old farmhouse...even has an "external" ,auxiliary, or "summer kitchen", which is separate from the house itself.
Thanks for the links...will definitely be scoping this out.

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

Have fun in there :)

When I stumbled upon this resource, I was taken back to my childhood. I wonder if anyone else remembers those cool newspaper tables that they used to have at Wendys.

Searched "Federal Reserve" 1913...

...whoa, a very deep rabbit hole of distortions and lies.

“The moral and constitutional obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people.” - Ron Paul

Found this gem from 1911

http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/46032385/1911-09-22/e...

This guy knew exactly what was coming..

"In every generation a central bank has been the dream of the holders of swollen fortunes. It would be in their hands a magic wand which would enable them to control the industries of a republic."

9/11 Truth.

for conspiracy theorists only...

I once spent several days trying to find WSJ, Newsweek, NYT items online from that period... the best i did was one of them, not sure which, but one allowed for late 1800s up to 1910's, then started again in 1940's and on... believe it was Newsweek, but now positive. If there's a good place to find those easily, love to know it, but on my last search I couldn't find 1910s-1940s with all 3...

Yeah taz, not sure why they

stop at 1922. I was thinking it could be a public domain issue, but I'm not sure why they would start back up in the 40's if that is the case.

Now I am not going to get anything else done today! Very cool Jimbo, thanks!

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Your welcome and I'm sorry :)

I didn't get much done yesterday
