A few days ago, more Tennessee newspapers were added to the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America website; specifically, back issues of the following newspapers were uploaded:
- Bristol News (& title variants) — 18784-1878
- Brownlow’s Knoxville Whig (& title variants) — 1860-1866
- Knoxville Chronicle — 1870-1875
This is the most recent batch upload in an ongoing collaborative project from the University of Tennessee and the Tennessee State Library & Archives. The latest additions bring the total number of pages up to almost 48,000 – just beneath the halfway point for this round of funding. the entire list that will be added can be found here.
The Chronicling America site is a wonderful resource for historic newspapers; the individual newspaper pages are easy to manipulate for saving and adding to your family history files. Check it out and see what you can learn.
