A. To reach the E-edition click the red and green "e-edition" logo on the right hand side of the grey menu bar on the Web site homepage.

Q. May I subscribe to the online version of the newspaper, without the print edition?
A. Yes. This is a convenient option for many readers who prefer to read the newspaper online only. The subscription rates are the same.
Q. How do I view the e-Edition on a mobile device?
A. At the top of the E-edition, you will see a button labeled "e-book." Selecting this option will allow you to read the Herald-Zeitung from a mobile device, Amazon Kindle, Sony Reader, Nook Reader or on your iPhone / iPod / iPad. This service is free to subscribers.
Q. Does the new Web site have a searchable archive?
A. All articles from the former Web site have been loaded onto the new site. Subscribers now have access to a searchable archive pulling up articles as far back as 2001.
As a way to show our gratitude for service, the Herald-Zeitung will provide a free online subscription to all service men and women while they are deployed overseas.
