"Brooklyn Newspaper"
« on: Thursday 22 November 07 16:29 GMT (UK) »
I would like to obtain a copy of a newspaper printed on the day of my father-in- laws birth October 1926. Born in Brooklyn and living in the UK since 4 years of age, he is very proud of his US connections, and still retains his passport. We felt this would be a suitable and pleasing Christmas present, but have got lost in trying to google. Any suggestions of websites I could try please. All help or suggestions most welcome. Best wishes Anne

Hi AM  - what a nice idea!  There is a newspaper called the Brooklyn Eagle

http://www.brooklyneagle.com/

It has archives - some of which are searchable online - and goes back quite a long way - hope it's of some use

Regards

Jaylay

The New YOrk times is also online

1) Its online itself- dont have the link to hand, but many article have to be purchased

2) If you are with a library in the US, it will probably be accessible with Heritage quest

Or you could post your query and someone might help you

Some might be expensive but a few choices (googled 'U.S. newspapers for your birthday' to get these but there are lots more):
