[SC] Present day names of town papers

8) I want to post information in any town newspaper SURROUNDING Edgefield SC. In my large city, we have about 3 black oriented AA newspapers. One popular one is dedicated to positive achievemants of black people. It talks about our black Dr.s, student achivemants, editorial opinions, family/class reunions,,everything a black paper talks about but focused on us, BLACK FOLKS. Everybody likes to read this paper. What I want is the name of the town and the name of the community paper everyone reads. I know some of my lost cuzzins, moved to other towns and cities in SC. I just don't know where. Many of you who have family still living in SC, will know how to find out what is THE NAME of the town black folks news. Some of you may know names of other town newspapers further away from Edgefield. Please give me the name of town and or paper. I will do my best to find the other info. Black History month is coming..WE ALL NEED TO START REPOSTING full names, birth and state preferably from the 1940 census of your family. Younger descendants will probably recognize them and get curious and tell the 'grown folks'. I know when I do so here on Afrigeneas, I can google a surname I POSTED and it is on the world wide web. Lost Cousins find it. So now I want to attack AA town newspapers. They plan what the items they will print, well in advance and a nice genealogy story will inhance their circulations. Some charge some don't.
Even think about sending a short bio about a descendant to the last CHURCH your ancestors lived in and around any town you are researching, ADDRESS IT specifically to the CHURCH SECRETARY. They know the history of their members. They know everything. It was suggested to send a token $$$ money order, for the church fund. I would specifcally word it this way. Churches struggle, donations help. They have Black History programs also. And they money order amount is TAX DEDUCTABLE.
