Historical Newspapers now at FindMyPast

British Newspapers GenealogyNewspapers are a rich seam of information when you are tracing your family history, they can add details which are not to be found elsewhere. FindMyPast.co.uk has added a Newspaper Collection to their offerings. As many will be aware Brightsolid who owns FindMyPast also owns the British Newspaper Archive website so I suspect this is a spin off from that.

The new collection comprises 200+ titles and covers the time period 1710 – 1950, more titles are promised in the future. The titles come from England, Wales & Scotland so there should be something to please most genealogists and local historians.

This collection does not seem to be available on the FindMyPast.com website only on the .co.uk site, this is very disappointing and I do hope that FindMyPast will soon be offering all the UK website as part of their so called World Wide subscription.
