Re: Site Cite: Old Hebrew newspaper online #general

Wow! Do you think someone will eventually create a name index for this
accessible in English? That way people might be able to print the pages
their family names are on and get someone to translate those specific
pages. There are so many researchers, like me, who can't read Hebrew, that
the thought of this database is both tempting and frustrating.

The Hebrew University in Jerusalem is running a project of scanning and

offering online access to Historic Hebrew Newspapers >from late 1800's -
early 1900's.

Until now, the following newspapers were available online:

Halevanon (1863-1886) 770 issues, approx. 7,200 pages.
Hamagid (1856-1903) 2265 issues, approx. 19,500 pages.
Havazelet (1863-1911) 1857 issues, approx. 14,200 pages.
Hazefirah (1862-1931) 8,600 issues, approx. 42,000 pages.
Hameliz (1860-1904) 5,600 issues, approx. 33,000 pages.

Recently, the newspaper Hazevi/Haor/Hashkafa (1884-1914), 2,534 issues,
approx. 12,600 pages, was added to the project.
Hazevi was edited by Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, the reviver of the Hebrew language.
