It is not possible to easily "read" the issues at GenealogyBank one after the other online like can be done at many other sites. I can't browse and I don't like it.
To read the paper for a specific date, one has to:
- start at the state list on GenealogyBank.
- click on the state of interest
- choose the newspaper of interest
- enter a date in the search box:
- a year range
- a date range
Apparently there are no 1864 newspapers in this collection until July of 1864--and apparently 26 July at that.
Then I clicked on the first hit "Taxes Due" so that I could get to one "hit" in the 26 July 1864 issue.
Then I clicked on "List all pages in this issue" which altered my page to the following:
But there's no "link" to the next issue or the previous issue--I'll have to go through the same search process again.
And, I can't see an inventory or a listing of what issues are available for a given newspaper.
I use GenealogyBan and make discoveries there regularly, but the site's setup seems to encourage search only and not browse.
I like to browse and I like to read for myself.
I also like to know what extant issues have been put in digital form on a website.
