More Additions to Wikipedia Newspaper Archives Page

I just love the fact that so many newspapers are scanned and available online!  Here's a round-up of the latest links I have added to my favorite newspaper resource, the Wikipedia page for online newspaper archives:

• Cuba:  seventeen volumes of the Cuba Review (it's amazing what you can find on the Internet Archive!)
• England:  issues 1–384 of The Strand (more from the Internet Archive)
• New Zealand:  DigitalNZ, a new collection that includes newspapers (but I didn't see a list of what's there)
• Oklahoma:  Gateway to Oklahoma History, with newspapers in Cherokee, Choctaw, English, and German
• USS Cumberland Sound:  six issues of Crew's News, the ship's newsletter
• Accessible Archives:  a pay site with historical black, abolitionist, and women's newspapers, along with some Pennsylvania and South Carolina papers

I think I found an article about someone I'm researching in the Cuba Review.  Now I need to look at those South Carolina newspapers and see if they can solve a brick wall for me . . . .
