Newspaper Databases

Huntingdon County Historical Newspaper Collection

Our first phase of digitization is complete with 20 years of the Huntingdon Gazette and 39 years of the Huntingdon Journal available through Power LibraryThis is a fully searchable archive, although there are some limitations due to image quality of the original scans.  If you encounter problems, please contact us and we will try to help you out.

We are always looking for old issues of Huntingdon County Newspapers before 1922. Currently we are looking for issues of the Huntingdon Gazette from 04/09/1812 to 03/16/1815.  These issues were never microfilmed and we have been unable to locate bound volumes or individual issues from these dates.  Please contact us for any help with regard to these missing issues.  It is generally our policy to microfilm older papers before they are digitized.

Our long term goal is to complete the Huntingdon Journal to 1904 and to locate missing issues of the Gazette and Journal.  We will also be considering future titles for inclusion into the digital collection.
