Newspapers in the Google News Archive

One great resource for free older newspapers For some reason, Google does not plainly list anywhere the newspapers it has full-image archives for in its "Google News Archive."

Why, I do not know; it makes things very annoying for people who know what kind of paper (based on geographic location, etc.) might have what they are searching for.

Here's a non-exhaustive list via searching manually. Note that Google may be missing some individual issues in the "Google Holding Dates" range; these are merely the earliest and latest I found for them.

Part 1:
