Morgen Zhurnal #usa #yiddish


My great-uncle Isaac Jacob Milner contributed to the Yiddish New York newspaper Morgen Zhurnal, which began publishing in 1901.  Microfilmed copies only exist from 1906.  Isaac Jacob died in 1905.  Is it possible that paper copies of the first years have been stashed away somewhere?

Hi from Paris,
Dear Fred, 
In France, each new publication, newspaper, book,... must do a legal deposit of one or two items to French National Library.
It was a way to get free a sample of any new publication.
I don't know if same legal obligation was in USA : in past ? now ?
You could ask Library of Congress, New York Public Library and of course Yivo.
And why not "Forward / Forverts", oldest Yiddish newspaper (1897) still printed in NYC.
