New York State Newspaper database

One of my close friends ~~Lowcountry Africana~~, does African American genealogy, among many other tasks, posted a valuable link to a database that houses thousands of New York State newspaper articles.

I have personally located data from the N.Y. database pertaining to my home town and family with some articles dating as far back as mid-1800s.

Take a few minutes to use the search engine to the Old Fulton Post Card link. They have a photograph section also but, I have not explored that section.

Here are links that may interest you:

Hello,

Thanks for the additional link to New York Newspaper material.
