Historical U.S. Free Online Protestant Newspapers

For those of you who have Protestant ancestors in your family tree, there are lots of newspapers that have been published in the past that may help you find some information and stories about your ancestors. So not only are the city or town newspapers great to research, but also the “specialty” newspapers, such as church newspapers, for example.
Take a look at these sites and search them for info about your ancestors. If you know of any others, please let me know in the comments.
