New York Times

Another useful tool for research is the New York Times Archive. At one time the NYT was the closest thing to a national newspaper the United States had.
Like some news sources today we may not always agree with the content, but it has considerable value regardless.

The Archive is free for articles from 1851-1980. It provides a .pdf file you can save to your hard drive. The search interface is fairly simple and easy to use. Give it a try. I have used it to find articles on Mormon activity in Tennessee.

The NYT Archive has turned out to be a great resource for me. I've used it a lot in the last year and I've found some wonderful information to add to stories I've found in the Utah newspapers.
