Bill Nelson took home top honors at the RootsTech Innovator Showdown with his pain solving problem OldNewsUSA Mobile App. If you’ve ever used Chronicling America to research newspaper, you know the content is great, but the search engine stinks like rotten tomatoes. OldNewsUSA rolls out with an Android solution to that problem.
Bill sat down with Devon Noel Lee of Family History Fanatics after the semi-final round of the Innovator Showdown at the 2017 RootsTech competition. After the interview, he succeeded in capturing $95,000 in cash and prizes to continuing developing this his app to expand to iOS operating systems and searching more newspaper collections!
This app makes me want to get a phone with a larger capacity! Check out the interview on the Family History Fanatics YouTube Channel!
