Coverage was usually limited to the area of circulation, and this let the papers focus on local events such as births, marriages, and deaths, for example. Such papers are of obvious value to the genealogist, and Mr. Gibson has produced a fine location list. Arranged by county, and thereunder alphabetically by local area, it describes concisely what papers were published, when they were published, and where they can be found today. This new Second Edition, largely compiled by Brett Langston and Brenda W. Smith, is a complete update of the original location list, showing the increasing availability of newspapers in microform.
