Points North - New York State Historic Newspapers has added a new help video for those users looking for a personal name. This video has been featured on our help page, and can be found by clicking the "HELP" button on the upper right. In addition, we recently processed four papers provided by Cornell University: the American Journal, Ithaca Daily Journal, Ithaca Literary Gazette, and the Ithaca Journal. This represents over 9,000 pages from 1817 to the early 20th century.
The Pulaski Democrat - September 30, 1914 - Early in the morning, the main barn on the farm of A. D. Mark's was found ablaze by his daughter. With great effort, the farmer and his family were able to save all but one of the horses. However, all of the pigs and the harvested crops were lost. The fire was blamed on a "tramp" that might have stayed in the barn without permission.
