Austrian Newspapers, Slovakia's Cemetery Database Online

Link from our friends at - Mapping Survey of Austria-Hungary 1910:

Free online collection of old newspapers from Austria

According to János Bogárdi's RadixBlog:

"The Austrian National Library is hard at work. They are putting old newspapers to the web: ANNO (AustriaN Newspapers Online). In February 2004 the number of available pages reached 1 million. One interesting title for Hungarian research is the Pester Lloyd. This was a German language newspaper published in Budapest. I haven't read into it deeply, maybe there are obits published in the paper." ANNO:

In other news for European researchers, RadixBlog also mentioned Slovakia's online cemetery database, with 1000 cemeteries recorded, and nearly 100,000 records! (English interface available - click on the US flag):
