Old News now has PDF images from a number of old newspapers. Yes, some of these would have been available on microfilm, but not with capability to search the text.

You can now find many articles that were lost to memory or some that were printed decades before you were born.

The Abilene Texas paper is one that they have about twenty years worth of issues. I found the death notices of my wife's great grandparents, Benjamin and Kate Longacre. Kate died in 1942 and Benjamin in 1951.
