CD: Port Tobacco Times, Volume 1-6


This CD-ROM contains the complete set of these important newspaper abstracts for Southern Maryland, spanning the years 1844 through 1898 (originally published in book form by Heritage Books, Inc., 1990-1999). The reader will find all the standard newspaper items of the day, such as: legal notices; names of people who had letters at the Port Tobacco post office; real estate listings; and vital statistics--marriages, births, and deaths. The author also succinctly summarizes accounts of local importance, such as prizes awarded at agricultural fairs; the subjects discussed by the literary debating society; extraordinary weather, produce and livestock; societies and organizations; licenses; elections; public announcements and more. Each volume contains its own index of full names.
