Private Dataset Offered to Pro Researchers

Genealogists and other researchers explore new historical resource

SHELTON, Wash. - May 26, 2023 - PRLog -- A new program aims to help professional genealogists and researchers source newly available historical records on behalf of their clients. While "the big three" online genealogy/research firms have gathered billions of records, many of which are duplicative public information, SmallTownPapers focuses on unique and exclusive content from rural community newspaper archives.

For the first time, SmallTownPapers is inviting professionals to access and use its content in their client research work, which until now, was prohibited. A fully automated licensing app ensures copyright compliance – protecting client use of content.

The company's database includes nearly five million pages of American small-town newspaper archives dating back to the 1800s. A majority of the content was digitized by SmallTownPapers from bound volume archives which provide the only copy of a community's documented history.

"We've spent two decades amassing this incredibly boutique database – now we're ready to share it with the research community for professional use," said Paul Jeffko, president of the company.

The database of people, places and events in rural America can be found at ( and includes features useful to professionals such as copying and organizing client-related content.
