Tennessee or New Jersey in Newspaper Table?

Today Feb. 16 2013, I received a message from a Mark Aubrey:

“Thanks for the work. A correction for you, though. The Sunday Chronicle of Knoxville, Tennessee is actually from Paterson, New Jersey.”

I of course knew what he was talking about as I had run into the same problem with other newspapers.

I didn’t know this specific error that Mark was pointing out, but in the past I’ve found that the Google News Archive list has a mixture of newspapers within a designated collection.

I sent a message back to Mark thanking him for the find and told him I would get on it right away.

What I found was exactly what Mark was talking about. The Knoxville, Tennessee newspaper “The Sunday Chronicle” has two different sets of collections under the newspaper name “The Sunday Chronicle” however only a small portion of the 1,447 issues they have are from Knoxville, Tennessee, the rest of the collection is from Paterson, New Jersey.

The first newspaper in the collection is Aug 1883 and it is published in Knoxville, Tennessee. Since I used the first issue of each collection to assign a publication location, Knoxville is what I assigned to “The Sunday Chronicle”. The collection continues thru March of 1884 and all those are from Knoxville. Then the collection has a big gap in years of issues which I talked about in my blog: “How To Work with Google Archive News”

I even showed an example of the “gap in issues”.

“The Sunday Chronicle” collection resumes in the December 1894 but this time it is no longer a Knoxville, Tennessee newspaper but a Paterson, New Jersey newspaper and it continues as the Paterson, New Jersey newspaper to the end of the collection in March 23 1924.

So Mark Aubrey made a significant find and has improved the USA Only Enhanced News Table for all of us who will use it in the future.

I went into the table and added a few lines in the Knoxville, Tennessee box and then added a new box under the New Jersey collection. I did not put the “new added” listing in with the other Google News Archive newspapers and even gave it a different color shading so that people would not mix up mine and Google’s entries. I also grabbed that portion of the table and brought it here for you to review [Note: the shading does not show up here].

I hope Mark’s sharp eye will help others to find the items they are looking for; be it in Tennessee or New Jersey.

Thank You.
Take Care.
