Southern GA Newspapers Online

The South Georgia Historic Newspapers Archive spans the years 1845-1922 and includes the following titles:

Albany News, 1870-1883
Albany Patriot, 1845-1866
Americus Times Recorder, 1881-1921
Sumter Republican (Americus), 1870-1885
Thomasville Times Enterprise, 1873-1922
Valdosta Times, 1908-1912
You can browse by title/year or year/title or search in various ways!
Newspapers for this time period can so enrich our genealogical research into our ancestors, especially for that 1880-1900 time period where with the almost complete loss of the 1890 census, we can often lose track of people for 20 years!
