Subject: Re: Any free online indexes to 19th century newspapers?
This is clearly a "hit and miss" situation at present. More will
become available as more money and time are spent -- and as more
microfilm makes access to content a higher priority than is right
now the preservation.
See: <http://www.scpl.org/vitalrecords/> for an example of an in-
progress (manual) index of some Schenectady County (N.Y.) papers,
obits only at this juncture.
