New York Times FREE 1851-1980

Yesterday at midnight the New York Times stopped charging for access to parts of its Web site

In addition to opening the entire site to all readers, The Times will also open its archives from 1987 to the present without charge, as well as those from 1851 to 1922, which are in the public domain.

There will be charges for some material from the period 1923 to 1986, and some will be free.

This is great news for genealogists searching for older records in newspapers
