  1. This is so exciting! I love researching newspaper archives. I am particularly pleased that DLG included the Dahlonega newspaper.

    My favorite neighbor, who had the same name as I do, was originally from Dahlonega and perhaps I can locate a newspaper article about her that she once showed me. She has long since passed away and it would be wonderful to see it again.

  2. Perhaps you could tell me the best place to look for newspapers for the Cedartown Georgia area from 1944 – 1994, any suggestions would be apprecicated.
    Thank you,
    Darlene

  3. Hi, Darlene:

    The Sara Hightower Regional Library Cedartown Branch has issues of the Cedartown Standard, the Cedartown Express, the Cedartown Advertiser, the Advance Courier, and the Iron City News, though the PINES catalog doesn’t clearly state the date range for their holdings.

    Thanks for your interest in Georgia Historic Newspapers!

  4. recently saw a post in ‘forgotten habersham’ (facebook; georgia) that wondered about a news source called ‘the southern record.’ nobody in the group seems familiar with this source and wonder if it was a newspaper, magazine, or ?. any help would be most appreciated. thanks!

  5. Hi, Deb:

    There are two publications called The Southern Record, according to our research.

    The first is from Savannah, with a start date of March 25, 1927.

    The second is from Toccoa, with a start date of 1897.

    The microfilm is in UGA Libraries’ holdings, and I have provided the call numbers for you here:

    The Southern Record (Savannah, Ga.) Basement Microforms Area FILM AN13.S45 S68 (1927:Mar. 25)

    The Southern Record (Toccoa, Ga.) Basement Microforms Area AN13.T67 R35

    I have let our newspaper archivist know about these titles, so that he can add them to our list of materials that have been requested for digitization.

    I hope that this answers your question!
