Google makes Historical Ottawa Citizen available online

Columnist Kelly Egan of the Ottawa Citizen puts it best in his article online today that:
For all the due concern about Google inhaling the world’s storehouse of printed words, it has done something wonderful. ... Quietly, it has digitized and made available online most of the archives of the [Ottawa] Citizen, putting about 2.5 million articles at your fingertips, the earliest from 1890.
That's right, free and easy to navigate, it's available at http://news.google.ca/archivesearch/advanced_search

Thank you for what you each do!

Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I'm fairly new, as well, and have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

Keep telling your ancestor stories!
