Earlier today VKN provided a link to a blog post on SC historic newspapers from a webpage called The Ancestor Hunt. On further review, I see that this person has collected quite a bit of information on newspapers and how to research them. His material is in 4 sections:

My Big 5 Free Search Sites

Informational Articles About the Whys and Hows of Newspaper Research

U.S. States, Canadian Provinces and Collections from Around the World (A listing with links)

My Big 3 Link Sites

His discovery of SC papers is actually the digitized collection that is on the Chronicling America website. I would suspect that some of the other states in his list will probably also be from Chronicling America.

What I found really valuable in his blog post was his link to his video on how to search and download articles from Chronicling America. I learned a lot and cannot wait to start doing some specialized searches in a couple of newspapers that are high on my research hit list.
