Suffolk County Historic Newspapers - New York State

The newspapers available on this site, which is a service of the Suffolk County public libraries on Long Island New York, date back to 1839. The following newspapers are available:
The Corrector - currently available: 1839-1871
The Long Island Traveler - currently available: 1872-1898
Sag Harbor Express - currently available: 1885-1898
The Long Islander - currently available: 1839-1925
The Port Jefferson Echo - currently available: 1892-1931
South Side Signal - currently available: 1869-1879
Suffolk County News - currently available: 1888-1923

Browsing on the site seemed to go pretty fast. However, the search engine for specific words seemed a bit slow and at times not responsive. Check it out. You may have better luck than me.
