Re: Update--SC Newspapers
In Response To: NEED Names of SC AA present day Newspapers ()
I finally remembered to call my local Main Library Special Collections section, they referred me to a site small town newspapers,com--but I knew that was not the list I needed. I then remembered to call the SC ARCHIVES. I was given information to google SC Press Association. BINGO. this site had THE LIST. There are names of weekly and daily newspapers. You want to look at the weekly newspapers A-Y. Abbeville was the first name. All of the names don't have a email address listed and I would rather talk to a human, when ever possible first. I called and told her my story about black history month is coming, the ancestors have planted this seed in my mind to find a newspaper and tell the story. Family tend to move within a state, but how would you know where. Little towns like to read about stuff connected to them. The Abbeville Editor advised me to...
There are names of newspapers listed A-Y.(Abbeville to York) Abbeville Svc's towns called Calhoun Falls, Due West, Iva,and Donalds. I was told a lot of these newspapers are owned by families. There are about 90 names of newspapers listed. The Abbeville Editor said it is NOT A GOOD IDEA to group together all the papers with email addresses in one email. Contact each one individually. If you think about it, 5 towns for each newspaper is a lot of communication getting out there. Now I have to get to writing. I want to get this to them BEFORE BLACK HISTORY MONTH. And a suggestion here. I always include afrigeneas.com as the website to use to post information about finding ancestors. The words in my stories about x-slaves and area where ancestors lived will let the reader know this is a ethnic website. I don't put my picture out there, but include a picture of a deceased ancestor. Safer that way. I have a fantastic one of my grandmother. I am going to recycle each one to different stories. Got to draw that attention. There are so many people that do not know about black genealogy websites to use.
