Expansion of Washington State Library’s Online Newspaper Collection

Nearly 50,000 newly digitized pages from historic newspapers based in Centralia, Eatonville, Tacoma and Spokane are being added to the Washington State Library’s online newspaper collection this year.


The latest titles are the Centralia Daily Hub (1914-16), The Eatonville Dispatch (1916-61) and Den Danske Kronike (1916-17), a Danish-English publication based in Spokane. The Centralia and Eatonville papers were added this month. Den Danske Kronike was added last summer, along with the Tacoma Evening Telegraph (1886-87).

All the digitized historic newspapers can be found on the State Library’s Washington Digital Newspapers website at: https://newspapers.sos.wa.gov/.


Thanks Dick. Found a key ancestor.


    Hello Donnduff07 I work for the Washington State Library and the newspapers were digitized as part of our newspaper digitization program. I’d love to write a blog post about how these papers are being used and your story would be a great addition. If you’re willing to talk to me could you email me at nono.burling@sos.wa.gov. Thanks


Thank you Mr. Eastman for sharing our newspaper article on your web page! We are excited to grow our online newspaper collection beyond our contributions to the national ChroniclingAmerica.loc program this year and hope that researchers will find our other digital and genealogical resources useful in their research. Your readers may also find these Washington resources helpful: https://www.sos.wa.gov/library/genealogy.aspx .

Cheers & happy holidays!
