Note to Users. Newspaper titles changed very frequently. In an effort to make the list more concise & usable, where possible titles were combined into the original title. For example, the Bridgeport Evening Farmer was also called the Republican Farmer & the Bridgeport Times & Evening Farmer. Links to all of these titles can now be found under Bridgeport Evening Farmer. Please use the Succeeding Titles links on the Library of Congress Chronicling America website to access later years. If you are looking for a specific newspaper whether it is online or on microfilm, please use either our Library Catalog or the Newspaper Index.
