GenealogyBank Is Putting Six Italian American Newspapers Online

See the full list on the GenealogyBank blog:

Later this year GenealogyBank will be digitizing and putting online six Italian American newspapers from three states: California, New York and Pennsylvania. These new additions, containing thousands of newspaper articles, will help you do genealogy research on your Italian American ancestors. Trace your Italian ancestry back to the 1800s with obituaries, birth notices, wedding announcements, and local news stories found in these old Italian-language newspapers.

Really?  This was posted on January 8, 2013.  It is now June 24, 2014 and there is no sign of these newspapers being put online. The last I heard was back in April I received an email saying that they were running a "bit" over time on this project.  Really?! We are now six months past the date advertised. The original post on GenealogyBank said that these newspapers would go online by the end of 2013. I'm getting extremely impatient.  I feel like I could find something about at least one of my ancestors in  Progresso or in one of the other Italian language papers from NYC at the turn-of-the-century. I am definitely running out of patience. Please hurry up and get these papers online. I will be happy to buy a one-year subscription to GenealogyBank to do that research~  Next time you take on a project like this, GenealogyBank, please don't tease us with promises you just can't keep.   Thank you.

Thank you!
