By Jose A Munoz

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.

  1. It’s too bad Google is now *commercial* mode only which only press agents report it foaming in the mouth like a bunch of rabid salesmen who knows they are looking at bankruptcy but refuse to admit it……..at least out loud.

    1. Thank You PurpleHaze for stopping by My Blog and for your comments; they are very entertaining. At first I thought you were a serious reader and wanted the tables to be put into a different format so that you could use them, but after reading all your comments I realize that you are just upset at the products that are available for users. Google News Archive is free so I don’t understand your comment on Google is now “Commercial”?
      Keep the comments coming I enjoy a good laugh.

  2. What I mean is Google has become streamlined and not caring about users. Look at all the issues on Google Product forums that go unanswered.
    but since you are obviously a blind fan I wont’ bother talking to you. It’s YOU that’s not serious not allowing those to have different views about Google except kissing up.

    In this case the customer is NOT wrong and I wish Google did charge people for product so they would either keep things polished or go out of business.

    Google is doing what Microsoft did. Offer everything for free to put other’s out of business then start charging money WHILE not caring about their products due to lack of competitors Google gets complacent.

    I would gladly pay a small monthly fee for a polished product instead of half broken stuff they always bring out as long as the fee’s are resonasble like 20 dollars a year and a lot of people would also pay for it who would like polished products.

    I would even pay for Google news archive if it was an option if that would make it polished and even had the state tables you posted in their product.

  3. There are anti trust laws for this reason to prevent companies from eating each other up but laws are only as good as they are enforced.

  4. I forgot to mention I DO like you’re state table thingy but what I am saying is that it’s too late for what you did to have any impact on the community except the occasional reader who is interested but most people won’t even think to look here. You can’t handle even the slightest criticism which strongly shows yon YOU’RE end.

    If you look at threads like these. https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/news/G0ux9Uua0oI https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/news/rjQqR-rRtRA/0-HRwwOB1CkJ

    And the last one here https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/news/Fw2caKy67LM Google falsely said the archives were back and from people pointing it out it was flat out lies what Google spouted. They only brought back limited searching and promised a major overhaul over a year ago that never happened.

    The last post did mention that the page number count got fixed which I noticed earlier in the spring. If a newspaper has 100 pages I can skip ahead easier again.

    For a while it was totally broken and now recently fixed so as the user said at least Google did something write.

    I would gladly pay for a polished archives as long as it means Google keeps up semi regularly on it! Nothing is for free and Google was BSing thinking they could do such a large project for free.

    1. Thank You for stopping by again and for the new comments. I read my Jan reply to you and I must apologize for the tone. I must have been having a bad day to write such a rude reply to your honest comment.
