Random searches on Google are a good start to find newspapers which might have results. There's no easy to search list of all newspapers on there. The biggest problem with Google News is that the search engine is pretty poor. It misses a large percentage of hits compared to the Newspaper Archive search. Also, a good percentage of Google scans are rotated 90 degrees, and these are never picked up by the search engine. With the Fort Scott cards I'm researching, maybe 10-15% of them appeared in searches. I'm just scrolling through day by day looking for wrestling ads.
