Digitized Newspapers Now Available Online Full editions of The Enterprise and Saint Mary’s Beacon now available on the St. Mary’s County Library website. July 30, 2015 – Leonardtown, Md. – The St. Mary’s County Library is excited to announce the availability of digitized newspapers on the St. Mary’s County Library website, www.stmalib.org. Full editions of The Enterprise from 1952 to present, and the Saint Mary’s Beacon from 1923 – 1984 are available for the public to search from anywhere with internet access. Customers can search by keyword the entire collection of The Enterprise or the Saint Mary’s Beacon at one time. It is also possible to search individual editions or years. Sara Stephenson, Virtual Services Coordinator for St. Mary’s County Library has been instrumental in this project. She explained “Initially, those who wanted to access historical St. Mary’s County newspapers had to do so in person via a microfilm reader at the Lexington Park Library. Then, in the fall of 2014 we were able to provide searchable digital files on computers at all three library branches. Today, we are excited to make available a searchable archive that researchers can access from anywhere they have an internet connection. This resource will allow both local residents and those researching St. Mary’s County from afar to access valuable information about our county and its history.” The transition from microfilm to searchable digital files was completed in 2014 by St. Mary’s County Library staff in partnership with Balance Imaging Solutions, LLC; The Enterprise and Post Community Media, LLC; St. Mary’s College of Maryland Library, St. Mary’s County Library Board’s Midge Cannetti Fund; St. Mary’s County Historical Society and St. Mary’s County Genealogical Society. Once the newspapers were digitized, the Library Board contracted with Creekside Digital from Glen Arm, Md. to create a searchable, online database. Jim Studnicki, owner of Creekside Digital has been an invaluable partner through this process and has created an easy to use product for customers in St. Mary’s County and beyond. Ms. Stephenson said “It was a pleasure to work with Creekside Digital on this project. They got our archive up and running very quickly and we’re very happy with the end result.” Joan Springer, the Library Board President, expressed appreciation for Ms. Stephenson’s work on this project and stated “The Library Board is proud to have been able to allocate a portion of the library’s operating budget for this very important local history project. We are committed to funding the ongoing costs to maintain this service.”

A One-Step Portal for On-Line Genealogy by Stephen P. Morse "The name “One Step” was chosen when I developed my first search tool, which allowed for searches through the Ellis Island records. A search done from the ellisisland.org website involved many steps, whereas my search tool was able to do it all in one step. Hence I called that tool “Searching the Ellis Island Database in One Step.” Little did I realize that, by choosing such a name, my website would become branded and I would be forced to use One-Step on all subsequent tools. I almost called that early tool “Searching the Ellis Island Database with Fewer Tears,” in which case this paper would be about the Fewer Tears website."
