Okay, here is a newspaper site.


http://www.newspapers.com/


This has a lot of old newspapers.   I do not want to save entire pages.  I want to cut and save specific articles from the past.

Does anybody know of a quick and cheap way to do that?   I am basically computer illiterate so please speak in layman terms. 

I thought maybe the results guys may use this site and know how to do it.

It's not Control and C keys pushed together and then run your mouse over the part you wanna save?

Click on "Clip" in the top right corner.

Drag the corners of the box around the article you want.

Click "clip", then "go to clipping".

Now you can right click the image and select "Save image as...".

If you want to edit the clipping (maybe it's not a regular shape and you want to remove parts of a different article), right click and select "Copy image", then paste it into a graphics program (Paint will do) and edit out the bits you don't want.

All the clippings you make will be saved into the "Clippings" tab at the top of the page if you need to go back to them.

You could save the whole page as a .jpg or some other picture format, then open it in Paint and cut out the part you want and paste it into an open empty Paint page.

Maybe. Sounds good in theory.
