What newspapers & magazines should we add next?

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

        Keep those early Dublin newspapers rolling in, the earlier the better. Thankyou digitizers!

        Good that there has been so many Irish newspapers digitised but still waiting for a Derry/Londonderry newspaper to appear.

        I would also like to see more Irish Newspapers digitized but there is no point in voting for this 'idea' as the BNA now state that they plan to add them.

        So true. To date, the Irish newspapers on this site have been invaluable. I am hopeful that The Limerick Chronicle will be added at some point.

        More Irish newspapers would mean more Irish subscribers from the whole of the Irish diaspora.
