Royal Historical Society (RHS) The Royal Historical Society (and its predecessor body, the Camden Society) has since 1838 published editions of sources on British History. It is a very good collection of editions of sources and important unpublished texts for historians, with expert commentary, and many of the early volumes remain in regular use. The publication is on-going (two volumes per annum), and the volumes are currently published by Cambridge University Press. The series now comprises over 325 volumes. Availability of electronic text Over 325 volumes of the back list of Camden Society publications are now available on-line through Cambridge Journals Online, providing an extraordinarily rich conspectus of source material for British history as well as window on the development of historical scholarship in the English speaking world. A number of volumes are freely available through British History OnLine. Forthcoming Fifth Series volumes in 2013 - 2014 Recently published Fifth Series volumes Permissions

HNC Home - NewspaperCat: Catalog of Historical Newspapers Historical Manuscripts Commission - Organisations and Projects - Making History HMC Reading Room ©TNA The Historical Manuscripts Commission (HMC, formally known as The Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts) was established in 1869, with a remit to survey and publish original records of 'Institutions and Private Families'. It thus performed a similar function with regard to private archives as the Public Record Office (PRO) did for official papers. Its publications of surveys and calendars were the major raw material for historians until the opening up of local depositories between the 1950s and 1970s, and the HMC also oversaw the maintenance of the National Register of Archives (NRA) from the latter's establishment in 1945. The HMC and the PRO merged to form The National Archives (TNA) in 2003.

American Historical Association Online Historical Newspapers Have you ever wished you could find links to all the online historical newspapers in one place? A place where they were listed by county and city so you could find the newspapers your ancestors read? This is the purpose of the Online Historical Newspapers Website. It is meant to be used as an aid to genealogists, historians, and other researchers. There's a lot of work that needs to be done to this site, and with all the digitized newspapers becoming available, it's likely this project will be a continuous work-in-progress! My goal is to first list all I can find for the United States and then go on to add newspapers for other countries. These links include both free sites and subscription database websites. Expand your research by checking out the Online Historical Directories Website here. Report errors and broken links or send suggestions for new listings here.

List of online newspaper archives This is a list of free and pay wall blocked digital online newspaper archives. Most are scanned from microfilm into pdf, gif or similar graphic formats and many of the graphic archives have been indexed into searchable text databases utilizing optical character recognition (OCR) technology. Some newspapers do not allow access to the OCR-converted text until it is proofread. Some local public libraries subscribe to certain online newspaper archives.
