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).
