JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen (US-MI) University of Michigan Launches Platform For Detroit Jewish News #general

The University of Michigan just unveiled a new source that documents the
history of Southeast Michigan's Jewish community over the last century. The
platform for the Detroit Jewish News Digital Archive, a free, searchable
database containing more than 100 years of digital copies of the Detroit
Jewish Chronicle and the Detroit Jewish News.

The Detroit Jewish News Digital Archive will contain every issue of the
Detroit Jewish Chronicle (1916-51) and the Detroit Jewish News
(1942-present). Researchers will be able to browse by date or use a
full-text search.

Access is through both the U-M online database and through the DJN website
as before.

To search the database go to: https://digital.bentley.umich.edu/djnews
