Re: Cleveland Gazette
In Response To: Cleveland Gazette ()

From wikipedia: "The Cleveland Gazette was a weekly newspaper published in Cleveland, Ohio from August 25, 1883 to May 20, 1945. It was an African American newspaper owned and edited by Harry C. Smith, initially with a group of partners. Circulation was estimated between 5,000 and 18,000.

The Gazette became the longest-publishing African-American weekly in the U.S., earning its nickname "The Old Reliable" by never missing a Saturday publication date in 58 years."

Like Robert. this newspaper has furnished much information, genealogical as well as general, about the lives of my ancestral families. I hope to post some of those articles as examples of what Tim Pinnick, the Forum Manager has been saying about the wealth of informtion to be found in AA Newspapers.

My first post is on my 2nd great-grandfather, Anderson Bridges, published in the Cleveland Gazette in the form of a memior by one of his sons, Rev. Richard Bridges.

Here I show the microfilm copy and my transcription of that article. BTW, this article was sent to me by an AfriGeneas Angel, who is an avid reader of AA Newspapers.

Best Wishes to the AA Newspaper Forum
