Almost exactly a year ago, we shared news that final titles had been selected for the papers to be added to the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America website. As of a couple of weeks ago, the first batches are now appearing online! The North Carolina Collection at UNC-CH recently wrote a blog post listing the papers that are now online.
Titles from Buncombe, Craven, Edgecombe, Mecklenburg, Pasquotank, Wake, and Watauga counties are up with time ranges spanning 1836-1922. Newspapers are excellent sources of information and this collection is definitely worth searching and browsing.
Even more will be added over the coming months, so be sure to keep an eye on the NC Miscellany blog from the North Carolina Collection for more updates.
