Old Local Newspaper On Line

There are a number of old Delmarva Newspapers on line. 

The Peninsular Enterprises newspaper Accomack Virginia 1895 to 1908 are located here;


you can select a year (1895 - 1908) and than pick the issue,

Example select Jan 5 1895 and four images will pop up generally with the Peninsular Enterprise only page 3 (image3) has local news on it and may be what you are most interested in. Pick an image and play with it some.

There are a number of newspapers out there across the country in the Chronicling America program so if you do a search for a specific name it will search all the papers, but you can do an "advance search" and search just the Pen. Enterprise issues.

The Nabb Center is at http://nabbhistory.salisbury.edu/

click on "search the historical eastern shore newspaper" block in Red,
at the next screen you can do a search of a particular name or click on browse - followed by click "Browse all digital archives" - followed by click "newspapers" - select a newspaper out of the 22 they have - select a year - select a month - click go
obviously you have to play with them some to make it work.

I use the snipping tool in window 7 to "cut out" an article and save it.
