Can anyone recommend a free searchable website for old Syracuse Area newspapers? I use www.FultonHistory.com a lot but it doesn't seem to have much of the 20th century. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On Ancestry
Go to search
scroll to New York State Database
NY Newspapers

There are several Syracuse papers including the Post Standard and Syracuse Herald

good suggestion kathy,

I always assume anyone that uses Ancestry knows there are also newspapers available here on Ancestry, might not always be the case, sometimes I forget myself when I am looking all over the place, wish they had more for the Albany and greene county area

Thanks Judy. I've rarely searched in that direction in my general searches for individuals because it brings up so many mismatches. Starting the way you suggest makes more sense and will give me the opportunity to narrow my searches. I'm assuming you've used the Old Fulton Postcards website for newspaper searches as well?

Thanks again,
Scott

I also use the fultonhistory site daily. I live in Saratoga County and the end of April several newspapers from Saratoga County were added. I have found so much information and obits. My husband and my family have both been in Saratoga County since the revolution so I have many, many names to check.

I also have found old fulton to be very useful. Except for one person I have been searching for forever, you would think she didnt exist, many of my relatives have shown up there.

Who are you looking for?

You mentioned Albany County. Here is a newspaper site for the Altamont area
