The Northern New York Library Network provides a treasure trove of historic Northern New York newspapers on line. Fifty newspapers are represented with over 2 million images. They can be searched and the actual images are viewable.
The site is easy to use and the images are viewed in pdf format, which makes any special viewer unnecessary. If you have interest in that part of the county, you should check this out at http://news.nnyln.net/
Thanks to Dick Eastman for surfacing this site in his Online Newsletter.
