I forgot to post about this news from a few weeks back. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel archives are now back online at Google News Archive. They had gone offline in 2016 due to the owner of the newspaper changing.

They have now put up an article saying that they are back online for now as they work with a new vendor. They said that people have been asking for them.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Google News historic archives are once again available for public viewing. These archives include Milwaukee Journal print editions going back to 1884, Milwaukee Sentinel papers going back to 1910 and Journal Sentinel dailies from 1995 through 2007.

This also means that I can continue adding to my Milwaukee Death Index project. It had to be put on hold as I was getting all of my data from these newspaper archives. I hope to begin transcribing new entries pretty soon. Currently, there are over 2000 entries already added, so take a look.
