norfolk/suffolk local papers, especially from Lowestoft.
Henrik Ibsen's unknown grandson was rescued by Lowestoft fishermen during the great gale of november 1893. Actually it would be a great idea to add issues of all british newspapers from about 18th to 25th of november 1893 to uncover all ov the drama this gale cost. Hundreds of lives were lost, and lots of heroism unfolded.
It's exciting to see the status of my idea change, but what does "ongoing digitisation" imply? What excactly are you digitising?
By the way: What does "Pending - ongoing process" imply?
Here is a list of the papers I've found that were published in the Lowestoft area in 1893:
Lowestoft Weekly Press and Beccles, Halesworth and Southwold Advertiser
Lowestoft News and Observer and Eastern Times
Lowestoft Standard and East Suffolk Conservative Courier
Lowestoft Journal and Yarmouth and County Record
Yarmouth Gazette and Gorleston Weekly News
Yarmouth Mercury, Gorleston Herald and North Norfolk Advertiser
Yarmouth and Gorleston Times
East Suffolk Gazette (published in Beccles)
Halesworth Times, Southwold and General Advertiser
AND please please please please the Lynn News and Advertiser and the Eastern Daily Press. Lowestoft would be well represented in the EDP .
And there are so many papers published at the same time in the Lowestoft area. It would be exciting to see how various events were covered by so many different papers. Plus a lot of the lowestoft papers are regarded as too fragile to be handled at the British Library reading room, and thus are unavailable to the public today.
Norfolk was a rich and influential area. Lots of intellectual life pre-1800.
