In my alerts this morning I found that Genealogy Bank has a few new additions to their searchable newspaper archives. They have listed: LA New Orleans Abeja 1/3/1829 12/26/1831 Historical Newspapers – in their archives. This section of a Louisiana newspaper has been added to its archive from a Spanish section of L’Abeille de la Nouvelle Orléans and The Bee. LSU special selections has more to say about the newspaper here.
And Tulane has a bit about the newspaper here, that indicates the following: “La Abeja (Spanish section of L’Abeille de la Nouvelle Orléans and The Bee) Daily. In French, Spanish and English. (Spanish section, Sept., 1829-Sept. 18, 1930) François Delaup, editor. Offices at 94 St. Peter Street. Ten years later a brief Spanish section was added to carry the pro-Whig sentiments of the paper to the Spanish- speaking population immediately prior to the 1840 national election. (Spanish section, Oct. 6 1840-Nov. 4, 1840).”
