I've recently edited and updated my collection of links for historical newspapers that should be of interest to this list. In addition to reorganizing the main page for improved ease of use, I've added a significant collection of links to external websites with holdings of interest to H-South members. I also added another page of links to google books scanned versions of The Missionary Herald (Boston) 1806-1861. The Missionary Herald was the organ of the American Foreign Missions Board of the Congregationalist denomination.
