exists to provide access to the news and history of Florida. All of the
over 1 million pages of historic through current Florida newspapers in
the Florida Digital Newspaper Library are openly and freely available with zoomable page images and full text. The Florida Digital Newspaper Library builds on the work done in microfilm within the Florida Newspaper Project.
The Florida Digital Newspaper Library includes:
Current Florida newspapers, digitized from 2005 - present
Historic News Accounts of Florida
With the exception of the East-Florida Gazette in the
1780s and a small press at Fernandina in 1817, Florida had no colonial
newspapers. Even in the immediate aftermath of cession in 1821, only a
few newspapers served Florida. Historic News Accounts of Florida
consists of stories and reports about Florida gathered together by the
Goza and Mickler families and donated to the P.K. Yonge Library of
Florida History. All are from non-Florida newspapers and cover
events in Florida from 1762 - 1885. The articles pre-dating the
Territorial Period help to "fill in" the journalistic record at a time
when there was no Florida press, while the articles from after 1821
both complement and supplement news published in Florida.
Florida’s newspapers are a state treasure, the historian's and
genealogist's best friend, and the community's collective memory. In
the world of newspapers, today's news is already history, from the
moment their stories are printed.
