Newspaper Links Recently Added to Wikipedia Page

I've added several new links to the Wikipedia online newspaper archives page.  All but one of them are free (hooray for free!).

• Québec:  Translated obituaries from the Keneder Adler for 1908–1932
• Wales:  The National Library of Wales has begun putting digitized newspapers and magazines online.  So far issues cover 1844–1910, and they plan to add a lot more.
• California:  The Free Speech Movement is a selection of scanned newspaper issues, mostly from the Berkeley Daily Gazette and the San Francisco Chronicle, relating to the movement.
• California:  San Leandro Public Library index to two local newspapers
• California:  University of Southern California "Trojan Family Archive", which includes the Daily Trojan (the student newspaper) from 1912–present (I used to work at the DT doing hard-copy paste-up and some editing!)
• Illinois:  Chicago Foreign Language Press Survey translations from 22 different languages of foreign-language newspaper articles from 1855–1938
• Louisiana:  New Orleans Bee posted as images only (no search) for 1827–1923
• Minnesota:  Chaska Valley Herald for 1862–1887
• New York:  Like jazz?  Issues 1–58 of the Buffalo Jazz Report are free online.
• Ohio:  The American Israelite (Cincinnati) is available for 1854–2000 as a pay service from ProQuest.
• Texas:  The J. C. Penney company used to publish an in-house newsletter called the Dynamo from 1917–1932. A sampling of 31 issues is online.
• Wisconsin:  Eleven newspapers from the Door County library, ranging from 1873–1925

I posted recently about having added a link to the Newspaper Abstracts site.  I found about 20 articles there that had been transcribed from the Winters (California) Advocate of the 1870's and 1880's.  What a great find!
