South Georgia Newspaper Digital Archives

Just saw over on DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Blog the announcement that the South Georgia Newspaper Archive (a project of the the Digital Library of Georgia) has made available historic newspapers from Albany, Americus, Sumter, Thomasville, and Valdosta.  What fun!  I typed in my last name, chose Valdosta, and got over 200 hits.  The first page was a 1908 article about a book that my second great uncle Louis Pendleton wrote (I'm working on a blog post about him).  The second page had a 1911 ad for my great grandfather Alexander S. Pendleton's wholesale grocery business.  The third was about a party that my grandfather Albert Pendleton had given in 1909.  That's as far as I've gotten.  Wanted to stop and post this.

From the South Georgia Newspaper Archive website:
 The South Georgia Historic Newspapers Archive spans the years 1845-1922 and includes the following titles:
Albany News, 1870-1883
Albany Patriot, 1845-1866
Americus Times Recorder, 1881-1921
Sumter Republican (Americus), 1870-1885
Thomasville Times Enterprise, 1873-1922
Valdosta Times, 1908-1912

Now, back to The Valdosta Times!
