Tables & Charts Search Tips

Use this search to find articles containing almanacs, weather reports, sports stats and stock charts in the historical newspaper archives. This online collection contains a variety of types of tables and charts as published in U.S. newspapers from 1735–1999.

Broad Table & Chart Search

Use only the ancestor’s surname for your initial query to receive the maximum number of matching tables and charts in your results.

Narrow Your Tables & Charts Search

If your ancestor has a very common name put their full name in "quotation marks" in the Last Name field to narrow record results. Leave the First Name field blank. If you are using an ancestor’s name in quotation marks, it is particularly important to run the search with the last name first in this category. This will find their name entry in the table or chart list.

Example:

"Snow, Charles" in the Last Name field.

To narrow down your search you may also try using a date range.

Search Stock Charts by Keyword

Newspaper articles in this collection include historical stock charts and tables. Try including keywords such as "stocks," "stock market," "exchange," and "statistics" in the Include Keywords field if you seek stock-related information.

If you know the name of the company or stock exchange, also try entering those into the Include Keywords field.

Example:

"New York Stock Exchange" OR "NYSE"

Note that you can also locate stock tables and financial articles in the Commodity and Stocks collection.

Search Sports Records by Keyword

Try including the sport name and/or sports team name in the Include Keywords field when searching for sports records and charts.

Examples:

"baseball"

"Chicago White Sox"
