Re: When to purchase, Tim?
In Response To: When to purchase, Tim? ()
These prices strike me as a little outrageous. If I am reading this correctly, this guy is asking these prices for a mainstream newspaper and turning it into a "black one" by virtue of a tiny article on a lynching or other event involving African Americans.
From a personal perspective, even if one of these events involved my ancestor I don't think I would pay such a price. I'd go to the microfilm and print it out for free (worse case 10 or 25 cents a page). Then take my 50 or so dollars and buy some vital records, pension files, or whatever.
