Suffolk Historic Newspapers Now Online

1 Comment

The libraries of Suffolk County, The Suffolk Cooperative Library System and North Fork Bank have collaborated to create a free online resource featuring digitized versions of historic Suffolk County Newspapers. The collection currently consists of 6 newspapers, including the Corrector, an early Sag Harbor paper, covering the years from 1839-1923. Plans call for 28 other Long Island papers to be added going back as far as 1791. The site has scanned copies of the original papers, all of which are searchable. A test search for the name “Tooker” in the Corrector turned up 146 results! It’s amazing. You can take a look by clicking here: Sag Harbor Historic Newspapers. You can also access it from the Online Reference page of our website. (Scroll down to the bottom of the page.)
