  1. I wish you would digitize Petersburg, Va and Southampton, Va papers. That’s where my family is from and I have to drive long distance to go to the library to look at the papers on microfilm.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Lynn. We’re constantly working on digitizing more newspapers, and hopefully will have some Southampton papers at some point. You’ll be happy to know we already have digitized Petersburg newspapers, four of them in fact: American Star, National Pilot, Petersburg Daily Courier, and Petersburg Intelligencer. Hope this helps!
