I’m pleased to announce that the first digitized pages produced by the Historic Maryland Newspapers Project are now accessible on the Library of Congress website Chronicling America. Issues from the German-language, Baltimore newspaper Der Deutsche Correspondent are available for the years 1858, 1866, 1868, and 1870-1892. For a tutorial on how to search for Maryland newspapers in Chronicling America, see this post on the Special Collections blog.
Before current funding ends in August 2014, the Historic Maryland Newspapers Project will also digitize several English titles published in Baltimore, including the American Republican and Baltimore Daily Clipper, the Baltimore Commercial Journal, and Lyford’s Price-Current, the Baltimore Daily Commercial, the Daily Exchange, the Maryland Free Press, and the Pilot and Transcript, as well as one additional title from Cumberland, the Civilian and Telegraph.
