Newspaper archives project
« on: November 06, 2018, 01:11:17 AM »
The Lincoln County News reports that the LCN and the Skidompha Public Library in Damariscotta have undertaken a project to digitize the LCN and predecessor newspapers.

Depending on the dates of the newspapers to be archived, this looks to make period newspaper articles on the original W&Q and WW&F more readily available.  I know researching the history of Cape Cod's railroads has become much easier with the availability of digital archives for several old Cape papers.
What–me worry?

This is great news. I have found articles on the W&Q in the old Gardiner papers that are online.
