I just got the same message again. I tried to bypass but couldn't. Must be my computer.

Here is another newspaper link from the Library of Congress.  Short time period but may be helpful.  I found the NY Sun very helpful.

One of the sites I normally recommend is Elephind

http://www.elephind.com/

It is a site that searches other sites (you can click on the list of titles and you'll find Trove, Papers Past, Chronicling America, and possibly some new stuff)

And for American Newspapers the video clip below is one I occasionally use at the start of talks on using newspapers for family history - and you don't even see a single newspaper ! (if you've not seen it turn the sound on and enjoy)
