Getting more out of Newspaper Research

I am a graduate of Tom's class and I have acces to Proquest. I am currently concentrating on the Baltimore Afro American. I just wanted to suggest that in addition to ancestor's research in the newspapers, look up a geographic location-town or county. I am researching in St Marys
County, Maryland and I have found additional info just searching that area.
I also recommend reading other articles on the page. I was originally reading about a fire in the county when an article on the Scottsboro Trial caught my eye. It described how the white accuser admitted her mistake and was apologizing at black churches. I never knew that. So now I am gonna read a book on the trial.
