Looking for the first draft of Petersburg’s history just got a lot easier. The Public Library is now storing local newspapers online. So far, the searchable archive includes papers from the Progressive in 1913 through to the Petersburg Press in 1931. By this fall, the archive should be complete up to a year within the current paper. Anyone can access the resource for free from their home computer.

Not Seeing YOUR Community's History Represented?

The preservation of Alaska’s history is a shared responsibility. Advantage partners with communities to archive & provide practical digital access to local historical content in print, that would otherwise be lost to the erosion of time. We want like-minded individuals to join us in our mission, and if you would like to see your local history online, please contact your local library, newspaper publisher, genealogical society, historical society, or educational institution, and encourage them to learn more about creating a Community History Archive,  or have them contact Michelle at (855) 303-2727.
