PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Several South Dakota newspapers pre-dating 1922 are now available on a national online database.

The South Dakota State Historical Society says newspapers from Canton and Yankton are now part of the Chronicling America project, a Library of Congress initiative to develop an online database of select historical newspapers from around the United States.

The Historical Society received a two-year $295,000 grant in 2014 to digitize the historical newspapers.

The Canton newspapers from 1876 through 1916 include five different titles: The Canton Advocate; Dakota Farmer’s Advocate; Dakota Farmers’ Leader; Lincoln County Advocate and Canton Daily Leader.

The Yankton newspapers from 1875 to 1885 included on the Chronicling America website are The Daily Press and Dakotan; Yankton Daily Press and Dakotaian; and the Press and Daily Dakotaian.
