Nearly two years ago I posted links to 30 digitized historic Oregon Newpapers posted by the University of Oregon. At that time, they had about 180,000 page posted and the site was quickly developing into an important source of genealogical data. Although I can’t find a number of pages listed on the site, I’m sure that it’s now over 300,000. Over 92,000 pages of historic newspaper content from Ashland, Enterprise, Grants Pass, St. Helens, Pendleton, Portland, Salem, The Dalles, and Toledo have just been added according to an Oregon Digital Newspaper Program News Release. Sixty-six titles from 24 Oregon communities are now available to search. Following are links to the digitized historic Oregon newspaper titles, as well as links to other Oregon Newspaper resources.

The website was made possible through the Oregon Digital Newspaper Program (ODNP) and is the culmination of over two years of work by program staff at the University of Oregon Libraries, in collaboration with the Library of Congress, the National Endowment for the Humanities and a number of state agencies & stakeholders.

For additional resources dealing with Oregon newspapers, online and on microfilm, check the links at the end of the alphabetical place listing.
