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 . . . .
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
