Thursday’s Tips – Google News Archives

I missed doing a post last week in this series, as I forgot all about it. I had planned to write about the Queensland State Archives website, but I recently subscribed to some Genealogy in Australia Facebook groups, and someone mentioned finding articles from The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald for years between 1955 and 1990, and said that they had come from Google News. I knew that these two newspapers are available on, but that’s a subscription site.  I therefore went hunting, and finally found the link: –

Browsing the list of newspapers, they appear to only have The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald from Australia, and the newspapers for The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald only go up to (and including) 1989, and there are some dates/years missing. appears to have a better coverage, but the Google News Archives is free.
