  1. Nottinghamshire Local Papers

    Nottinghamshire as a whole seems to be poorly served, with only Nottingham and Mansfield covered. Personally, I would like to see The Worksop Guardian or Trader digitised.

          • Dumfries Weekly Journal

            I would love to see the Dumfries Weekly Journal added some time in the future as it will help me enormously with my ancestral research thank you.

              Is there a reason these issues aren't available? Would love to see them!

                • Recent Newspaper Issues

                  I really am surprised to see some relatively recent newspaper issues being digitised eg 1990s. Surely the idea is to preserve for access older issues of a range of newspapers and that the digitisation of these more recent editions could be postponed. I for one would love to see the Malton Messenger or Malton Gazette digitised and added to the BNA (but there is a separate thread for this!)

                  • The Builder

                    The Builder was first published in 1843 and under the editorship of George Godwin (1844-83) it developed into "the most important and successful professional paper of its kind with a readership well beyond the architectural and building world". It featured not only landmark buildings – with fabulous illustrations – but also articles on more practical aspects of the building trade, sanitation and so on. Further background here:
                    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Building_(magazine)

                    Some issues of The Builder are available online (http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/webbin/serial?id=builder) but many are not searchable. It would be wonderful if the British Newspaper Archive could spearhead a campaign to bring together…

                      • Manchester Evening News 1919 - 1930 a persistent date gap which I understand has been overcome with more co-operation from Trinity

                        Manchester Evening News 1919-1930 a persistent date gap for many years which I understand has been overcome with more co-operation from Trinity, but still no examples in July 2018.

                          Daily Gazette issues for years 1901-1913 appear to be missing in your collection. They are available to view at Middlesbrough Library but without the luxury of a search engine. Do you know when they may become available in your online collection ?

                          • National Reformer

                            The newspaper advocated a whole range of reforms including universal suffrage and republicanism. Sales of the National Reformer reached 5,000 but in 1861 Joseph Barker left the journal because he disagreed with Bradlaugh's advocacy of birth control.
                            BIradlaugh recruited Besant to work on the National Reformer, and over the next few years wrote a series articles on marriage and the political status of women.

                                  • Liverpool newspaper circa 1900-1914.

                                    The lack of any Liverpool paper for this period is frustrating for someone like me researching early twentieth century British social history

                                    • Liverpool Courier 1900-1920

                                      As we have seen, Liverpool papers are not adequately represented. The Liverpool Courier was one of the main papers during the early 20th century. The Liverpool Daily Post from 1914 to 1930 would also be an important and useful addition.

                                        • Montrose Standard 1958 - 1964

                                          The Montrose, Scotland area newspapers you added Feb 2018 are excellent, but only go to the end of 1958

                                          Angus Council Web Site shows the Montrose Standard actually goes to 1964...

                                          http://archive.angus.gov.uk/historyaa/features/2003-06-newspapers.htm

                                          It would be great to extend these Johnson Press PLC papers on the east coast of Scotland for a few more years!

                                          Personally I'm actually interested in the Montrose Standard itself for only a short period 26th May 1963 - 10th June 1963
