Newspapers we should add next

Tell us what publications would be of most use to you. You can be as general (Victorian cycling magazines) or specific (South Wales Argus) as you wish! We take on board all of your suggestions but are bound by copyright restrictions and our agreements with publishers, these form the boundaries of what we may publish online.

  2. Inverness Courier

    The Inverness Courier from 1817 onwards is on microfilm at Inverness Library. The BNA holds digitised copies up to 1909. It would be great to see this more comprehensively digitised as it is the principal newspaper for the Highlands. My interest is in family history - there are many people all over the world who have their roots in the Highlands of Scotland. Newspapers are a fantastic resource for family historians and it would be amazing to see more editions of this newspaper on the BNA for us all to enjoy!

  5. The Borehamwood Times and Edgware Newspapers

    Thank you for all the fantastic digitisation and blogs you've been putting together - really amazing, interesting stuff.

    Digitising the Borehamwood Times or any of the Edgware or Watford newspapers would fill a gap that exists in North London / South Hertfordshire between Harrow and Pinner in the West and Hendon and Finchley in the East.

  6. Church Bells

    Church Bells is a unique weekly newspaper. First published in 1869 it continued in publication until 1906. Being neither anglo-catholic nor evengelical it sought to establish a 'middle way' for the Church of England in the closing decades of the 19th century. Its addition to tthe collection would be an invaluable resource to historians of the period.

  7. Morning Chronicle (before 1800)

    Could you upload Morning Chronicle (before 1800) please... I am doing research and unable to visit BL in person (due to Covid-19). I am sure my research will benefit a lot from the Morning Chronicle of the late 18th century, between 1780-1800.

  13. Wisbech Advertiser or Wisbech Standard

    The Wisbech Advertiser and the Wisbech Standard both covered a relatively broad area of the East Anglian Fenland. Wisbech is designated as 'Capital of the Fens' and is where three counties meet, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Lincolnshire. Either publication would be a welcome addition to the British Newspaper Archive.

  16. Kentish Express

    It would be great if the Kentish Express (based on Ashford, Kent and surrounding villages) could be digitised, as I am tracing my family history and a lot of my relatives come from this area

  20. Newcastle Daily Leader

    Since some issues [e.g. early 1890] are too fragile to view in the British Library this should be prioritised over content already available in other formats/places...
