The link you provided leads to a webpage on the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) website about the “Chronicling America’s Historic German Newspapers and the Growth of the Ethnic Press” project. This project was a collaboration between the NEH and the Library of Congress, with the goal of digitizing and making available online a selection of historic German-language newspapers published in the United States between 1836 and 1922.
The project aimed to preserve and provide access to these newspapers, which provide important historical and cultural insights into the lives and experiences of German immigrants in the United States during the 19th and early 20th centuries. By digitizing the newspapers, researchers, historians, and the general public are now able to search, browse, and read these newspapers online, allowing for greater access and discovery of this important cultural heritage.
The webpage provides information about the project, its history, and its impact. It also includes links to the digitized newspapers, as well as resources and educational materials related to the study of ethnic press and immigrant communities in the United States.
