    The Ancestor Hunt has been tracking Advantage Archives Community History Archive installations at libraries and other institutions since 2017. We have been publishing links to these Archives for our readers since there were just a couple hundred institutions 7 years ago. Our interest has always been in newspapers, a favorite topic at The Ancestor Hunt.

    Advantage has always been very cooperative with us and we know it is dedicated to assisting local libraries especially, to digitize newspapers and other historical documents. Our mutual goals are the same – to assist library patrons, researchers, and local communities.

    We celebrate with Advantage a major milestone – over 120 million pages of historical documents digitized and searchable and available to researchers for free everywhere. We honor the 1,000  libraries and other institutions that take on the challenge of funding these projects in service to their patrons and communities.
