  2. Weston Mercury

    I have been researching the history of Choral Music in Weston-super-Mare using your archived material which I am able to access on line. So far it has enabled me to form a picture of what it was like prior to 1950. One paper which may have been of assistance which was missing was the Weston Mercury (Weston-super-Mare)

  3. Diss Express

    Diss is a market town, mentioned in the Domesday book, and the centre of the Waveney region, on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.

    The "Diss Express and Norfolk & Suffolk Journal" was founded in 1864 and is the pre-eminent local newspaper of record

  4. Athletic News

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

  5. 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.

  7. Weston-super-Mare Gazette

    It would be good to have digital access to the Gazette from its first publication in 1845 to its closure in the post-war years.

  8. 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

  9. More WW1 Local Newspapers

    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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!!

  14. (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

  15. Ross-shire Journal

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

  16. Tit-Bits, Answers, Pearson's Weekly, and Ally Sloper's Half Holiday

    Some of the best-selling weekly newspapers from the nineteenth century have yet to be digitised. Tit-Bits, Answers, Pearson's Weekly, and Ally Sloper's Half Holiday all sold hundreds of thousands of copies each week and had an enormous influence on Victorian culture. I occasionally tweet example from my own bound volumes of these periodicals and I've lost count of the times that people have asked me where they can find them online.

    As well as being packed with entertaining content, these papers also conducted a lot of competitions and other forms of reader interaction - this often resulted in readers' names…
