Home access to NEHGS subscription to "Early American Newspapers Series 1, 1690-1876" is about to end

Part of the New England Historical Society's database offerings (America's Historical Newspapers)  includes Newsbank's Early American Newspapers Series 1, 1690-1876.  Apparently Newsbank is discontinuing the remote/home access offering for NEHGS members by June 12 (it will still be available to those who physically go to NEHGS).

I went to check out the collection and noticed that at least some of it is covered in the GenealogyBank subscription I have.  I also found a nice rundown of their "era" categories, which I might employ when writing about ancestors in context of their times:
