Alberta, California, Hawaii, Iowa, Illinois, Manitoba, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington, and West Virginia New Pages and Updates

While I have not posted updates to this blog since April, it does NOT mean I have not updated the site. On the contrary, I was very busy this summer posting new titles to the site. However, this fall, I started to have some familiar shoulder pain, and sure enough, I became a candidate once again, for rotator cuff surgery, this time on my right shoulder. I had the surgery on December 19th, and am still very much in the early stages of recovery. However, I can type one-handed, slowly, and so I decided that now was as good a time as any to inform you of the new titles and updates that were posted this past year.

New Pages

Alberta - with one title from NewspaperArchive


California - one new title from NewspaperArchive, and two from Google News Archive; corrected info on one title from Google News Archive

Washington - removed link to Tri-City Herald after determining it is no longer offered through Google News Archive

Manitoba - for some reason, this page was not linked to the Canada page, so the public didn't have access to it, unless they knew the direct link. Fixed. Added one title from University of Manitoba.
