Anyone have advice on how to do this? Now that I can convert the albums I have to digital files I'd like to date them as well, and few of them have dates. Two I grabbed at random are "Ted Nash, the music of Frank Comstock from Starlite records" and "Schubert unfinished symphony, No. 8 in B minor by the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Serge Koussevitzky, Conductor", both 33 but I've got plenty of 78;s too. I'd guess they date from the 1940's to the 1950's but I'm not sure.

Phonograph records didn't fall under copyright until 1971 (the ℗ symbol stands for Phonogram). But discographies will often list both the recording date and the original issue date. The biggest general online discography I know of is www.discogs.com; www.allmusic.com is another place. It's possible you'll be able to find specialized discographies, e.g. for the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

You also may find information about specific albums in Wikipedia, but it's hit or miss -- whether the album is even there, or if it is, how much detail is included

So far some of them have been easy, an old Pink Floyd and Mama Cass album.
