A few weeks ago I attended a wonderful Genealogy Seminar in Atlanta. There was a lot of great information. The one tidbit I’m going to discuss today is a great resource on  Black Newspapers . This site is maintained by  Matthew F. Delmont.

Black Newspapers are a wonderful glimpse into the culture and community of a particular locale. It’s important to search (keyword) these treasures as well as scan them page by page. It helps the researcher to understand what was going on at any given time.

Hoosier Chronicles is a great digitization project. A lot of awesome newspapers were digitized from all of over the state of Indiana. Below is a snippet of the newspapers from Marion County (Indianapolis). It’s worth look if you have family that lived in Indiana. The highlighted papers are the black newspapers.
