Google News Archive title list

Recently the genealogy group in Diigo posted a website for all the newspapers digitized in the Google News Archive (see direct link under Online newspapers). The list is alphabetical and doesn't include the location so you need to know the name of the newspaper. My Christmas Day treat was to go through the list and pull out all the SC newspapers I could find.

When Jean, a fellow sufferer, went through the list for the Charleston papers she found alot of errors especially with dates. I found the same problem so search carefully. Fortunately, Google gives a neat looking timeline so you can see what time period your search is covering.
