Australian newspapers online – log on and discover!. .

Since 2007 the National Library – in partnership with State and Territory libraries – has been digitising out of copyright newspapers. It’s now possible to search through the project’s Australian Newspapers site newspapers published in each state and territory from the 1800s until the mid-1950s.

Newspapers of particular interest to those of us  researching Sydney include:

Sydney Chronicle (1846-1848)

Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser (1803-1842)

Sydney Herald (1831-1842)

Sydney Monitor (1828-1838)

Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser (1838-1841)

Sydney Morning Herald (1842-1954)

Sun-Herald (1953-1954)

Sunday Herald (1949-1953)

In October the project scanned its 30 millionth article! You can log-on to this tremendous resource at www.nla.gov.au/ndp/
