The Syracuse Union is a German language newspaper that ran a weekly edition from 1866 to 1941. This newspaper developed out of the Syracuse freie Presse and was very successful in providing information to the Germanic immigrant population of Syracuse and the surrounding area. New York State Historic Newspapers has over 25,000 pages of this newspaper, which were provided by Syracuse University. This is the second foreign language newspaper in the database, along with La-Gazzetta di Syracuse, which was also provided by Syracuse University.

New and Upcoming Newspapers

A new feature has been introduced on the title pages, the ability to quickly search a specific title. By clicking on the Search This Title link on the upper right hand of the title information page the search interface will appear with the options pre-loaded for convenience.
