[CA] Los Angeles Newspaper California Eagle Online
Found a quirky website through that mocavo.com search engine that has a searchable version of the Los Angeles Newspaper, "The California Eagle", from at least around 1915 til the early 1960's but I'm uncertain of the exact time range. The search engine is really great and there is an excellent FAQ/Help on how to use the search function. The website is actually for small town New York State Newpapers and I could not find the "California Eagle" listed anywhere on any of it's indexes but none the less it is there.
When you get to the website, click "Enter" and the search engine will be in the left panel. To search only the "California Eagle" for a surname such as Bontemps for example, in the search box enter (without the quotes) "Los Angeles CA California Eagle and Bontemps" and then select "boolean" instead of "all the words" from the pull down menu. The results are all of the matches for author, Arna Bontemps, his father Rev. P.B. Bontemps and his sister Ruby Bontemps Troy. Give it a try if you have folks in the LA area.
