Where can I find newsreels and films from the 1910s?

Calling film historians and conservators! I am working on a historical novel set in the 1910s and I would like to get more of a feel for the time and place. Are there any high-quality online archives of films and newsreels of that era, from the likes of Vitagraph, Essanay and other studios?

I have found some resources on youtube (for example, Cure for Pokeritis
), but I've found even more references to showings of films that have either not been digitized or not made available online. Beyond youtube, are there any sites that specifically have good collections of films that have been preserved or, even better, preserved and curated?
