While it is difficult, ie nearly impossible, you can still get information from the Google newspapers. However you must do Google Searches either in the web search or the book search. Once you find a hit on the newspaper you want, bookmark it in your browser.
You can then navigate through the newspaper by going to the date of the event you are looking for and search page by page.
It is very time consuming, but I found several newspaper clippings that helped tie to parts of my family together.
