Here are some links to Juniata Colleges Digital Repository. It is a free site and has many old periodicals from all over the state.

My favorites are the Huntingdon County newspapers. I think all they have are the Gazette and Journal. They are totally randomly ordered, and the date is not listed. You have to click on each issue's link to get the date. But they are word searchable.

I have been working on indexing all of the marriages and obituaries, but it is painstakingly slow. There are no content listings on the papers like modern day, so the page they are on vary from issue to issue. Many issues have none listed at all. Then there are weeks when the paper wasn't printed due to holidays or other goings on. Many are very difficult to read, due to the fact these were all individually scanned in.

If you have a name you would like me to search for, let me know. I will see if I have it indexed yet. I do have the Gazette all done. I still have about 1200-1300 more issues of the Journal to do. I also printed and donated a copy of the Gazette listings to the Blair County Genealogical Society. I have not gotten to take one to the Huntingdon Historical Society yet.
