  1. The Cricket and Football Field

    Sports paper based in Bolton, Lancashire but covering all of the UK. Great for researchers of sports from the 1880s to the 1930s.

    • Shields Daily News

      Shields Daily News
      The Shields Daily Gazette is included but that covers SOUTH Shields. You have nothing at all for NORTH Shields, a comparable town immediately across the River Tyne. What have you got against us North Shielders! We ask no more than to be treated equally!!

      • Torquay Times

        We need some coverage for the Torquay area.

        I would suggest the Torquay Times published weekly 1865-1976.

        • Glasgow Evening News

          Excellent newspaper, provided more detailed coverage of the Glasgow area than did the Glasgow Herald.

          • Add the Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald

            So useful for Scottish researchers, covers all of Ayrshire and that's an area that needs much more coverage!

              • see below if I've put it in the right spot??

                Arthur Lismer sent images of the damage from the December 6th, 1917 Explosion of the munitions vessel Mont-Blanc to the Sheffield Independent which published them. I would estimate that they appeared in the last week of 1917 or in the month of January 1918. Have these issues been digitized or are 35 mm microfilm copies available for interlibrary loan? These images og pen & ink sh=ketches should be quite easy to spot sine I expect that there were three or four used in the Sheffield Independent??

                Regards

                Alan Ruffman

                  • (Great) Yarmouth Independent 1857 to WW2

                    Great Yarmouth in Victorian times was a major seaside resort and herring fishery. This paper is full of interesting facts. We have a thriving local research group which uses the hard copies of the paper regularly. Unfortunately they are in a poor state

                    • Ross-shire and the Western Isles

                      Almost 10 million pages available - a great total and resource, but some counties (such as my own areas of interest, Ross-shire and the Western Isles) have yet to get off the mark. Can this be looked at so we have some basic coverage of the whole country? Thanks

                        Despite its title this became as one historian wrote "the voice of football and the paper of the discerning football enthusiast."

                            • More Carlisle newspaper editions

                              Please add more early years for the Carlisle Patriot and Carlisle Journal. The Patriot currently only runs from 1817-1820 plus about 3 editions from January 1821 as well as some random later years. The Carlisle Journal has 1847 and 1849 missing in its run from 1833-1866. It would be nice to have the whole of the 19th century covered without gaps by one or the other of the Carlisle papers.

                                  They often carried obituaries, with photos, of local casualties. As many service records have been destroyed, these can be the only detailed record of a soldier.

                                  • Irish Newspapers prior to 1922.

                                    As you probably know, the vast majority of the census returns, wills, parish records etc were destroyed in a fire in Dublin in 1922. This means that the only real source of finding information is through the newspapers. A searchable newspaper archive for the Irish newspapers prior to this date would be extremely useful

                                      There is very poor coverage of the Highlands. The "Ross-shire" has been the voice of Ross-shire since the 1870s.
