Consisting of over 152,000 newspaper pages, the archive provides historical images that are both full-text searchable and can be browsed by date. 

The archive includes the Vienna Progress (1893-1904), in addition to the titles previously available in the archive: Albany Herald (1892-1893, 1900-1901, 1906), Albany News (1867-1892), Albany Patriot (1845-1866), Americus Times Recorder (1881-1921), Bainbridge Democrat (1872-1909), Bainbridge Search Light/Post-Search Light (1901-1922), Brunswick Advertiser/Advertiser and Appeal (1875-1889), Cuthbert Appeal (1866-1886), Sumter Republican (1870-1885), Tifton Gazette (1892-1919), Thomasville Times Enterprise (1873-1922), Valdosta Times (1908-1912), Vienna News (1902-1918), Waycross Headlight (1884-1887), Waycross Herald (1892-1914), and Waycross Journal (1901-1914).

The South Georgia Historic Newspapers Archive is a project of the Digital Library of Georgia as part of the Georgia HomePLACE initiative. The project is supported with federal LSTA funds administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Georgia Public Library Service, a unit of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia. Digitization is also made possible through the generosity of Randy Sullivan.

  1. The Vienna News is missing a few years in the 19-teens. I think it is 1914-15, but could be other years too.

    Is there ANY CHANCE these simply have not been scanned yet, or are they lost forever? 🙁

  2. Hi, Brian:

    The reason DLG didn’t film those gap years is that they were never microfilmed. We digitize from the holdings of the Georgia Newspaper Project and that gap exists in their holdings, unfortunately. Those years may exist somewhere in paper form, but the Georgia Newspaper project does not have those issues. Sorry we can’t be more helpful. Perhaps you can check with your local library or courthouse to see if they have issues of the paper available. Thanks for your interest in our newspaper collections!
