      North Carolina Newspapers Research Easier with the NC Newspaper Locator

      What newspapers were published in or near
      Brevard, North Carolina, in 1910? That's a big question and if you've ever
      had to try to answer it, you know that you are in for a little research.
      Well, the Government & Heritage Library at the State Library of North
      Carolina just made that question, and others like it, easier to answer.

      The North Carolina Newspaper Locator database, reflecting the microfilm
      holdings of the Government & Heritage Library, contains listings for nearly
      2,000 unique newspaper
      titles dating from 1751 to today. Free to all and of particular interest to
      North Carolina genealogists and historians, this database locates newspapers
      in time and geographic space. Users can search for titles by specific
      counties or those surrounding them, city, date or date range, or by a
      newspaper title itself. Once a newspaper has been located, users may request
      the microfilm reels through their local library’s interlibrary loan service.
      We lend newspaper microfilm to libraries throughout the continental United

      The power in the database lies in the ability to expand a county search to
      neighboring counties. For example, genealogists looking for marriage and
      death newspaper announcements
      may know where an ancestor lived, but that doesn’t mean finding the
      announcements is straightforward. The NC Newspaper Locator searches not only
      by city, but also automatically by county. And, it gives users the option to
      expand their search to all surrounding counties. This gives a researcher
      more time to spend perusing appropriate newspapers for family information.

      So what about 1910
      Brevard, North Carolina, newspapers? A quick search of the NC Newspaper
      Locator finds that the
      Sylvan Valley News was published in Brevard, in Transylvania county, from
      1900 to 1916. Even better, at least five other newspapers were published in
      the North Carolina counties surrounding Transylvania in that same year
      (Asheville Gazette-News, French Broad Hustler,Waynesville Courier, Western
      Carolina Enterprise, and Western North Carolina Times).
