Historical narratives are created by word and image. Eventually they acquire a reality of their own. I focus on the 1842 Times and Seasons and related issues because of how influential the material remains to this day. Basically, I don't think Joseph Smith had much to do with the Times and Seasons and that he never wrote or edited the unattributed articles about women and the Church, Central America, and other issues.

The Juvenile Instructor blog is keeping up with newly digitized sources here. This is a very helpful resource for historians.
BYU has also made the journals of James E. Talmage, from 1879-1911, available here.
