  1. Pin newspapers to specific people

    I had an idea, what if you could pin pages to people, like say you want to filter articles about a less known specific person, not on the level of like presidents, but say criminals or war heroes, etc. if you could tag that person and the system would give them a unique indexing number and profile that users could link pages to, add descriptions to, etc. kind of like how Ancestry links documents to profiles of specific people.

  2. Ability to sort bookmarked articles

    It would improve this site immeasurably if it were possible to sort bookmarked articles by date of publication (or source) once they have been saved into a folder.

    At present there is no way of organising articles once they have been bookmarked, except by moving them between folders. This makes any sort of chronological research incredibly difficult. It would not be difficult to introduce a 'sort by' field in the bookmarks page, given that the date metadata already exists.

  6. Same areas being appointed tiresome

    Widen your current areas for example why not add more of Yorkshire, East Anglia, East Midlands or South Wales and the South West it seems to be you high prioritise only certain areas like Middlesex, Ireland, West Midlands,Somerset and the South East!!!

  7. Make it easy to see other editions of the same paper, from the search result you are reading

    Quite often a story will be reported most thoroughly in a particular paper. So when I'm reading (say) Tuesday's edition (via the search), I can scroll between different pages for Tuesday, but it's not possible to easily see Monday or Wednesday's edition. I have to come right back out and browse through the newspapers, browse through the years, browse through the months, browse through the days! It's surely unnecessary? That would be a great improvement.

  8. This site Flatters to decieve

    Promises wide scale coverage yet only delivers on Ireland or London papers past 1950s threshold. We need a compromise and add more papers like the Bolton News, Sheffield Star, Stoke Sentinel , Portsmouth News, Norwich News to broaden the spectrum!!

  9. Stop adding every Irish and Middlesex titles

    For the last six months these two areas have dominated the proceedings give Yorkshire papers more airtime very frustrating

  10. Repetitive Middlesex/South East monopoly

    Could we please now start to branch out into other regions sadly lacking the same concerted efforts as the South East, it’s very disheartening to see all your attentions dedicated to solely this area.

  11. Old English grammatical question

    Not an idea, really. If a person edits a column from the 18th century and is confronted with f instead of s, should we use f, or the up to date s.
    e.g. Douglafs. I would like to confidently change the f' because it would accidently reduce the search field left in it's old English type, what do you think?

All continually overlooked in favour of such mundane regions !! Get it sorted

  13. Ability to correct article sections, eg split, exclude, merge

    When editing, I often find the selected "article" in fact includes multiple unconnected texts on the page. If I am going to help edit as I go anyway, I would rather I could fix this by eg, marking a line as being the end of an article, or not in the article at all when the selected texts are not related? Similarly, the ability to add by marking as part of the article when not currently selected. The thee common situations I see are: selected text continues past end of actual article (a split feature would help here); select text…

  15. Abstain from adding every Middlesex title please

    Do we really need every small town in Middlesex having widescale coverage over the likes of the Manchester Evening News, Leeds Yorkshire Evening Post, Sheffield Star, Nottingham Post, Bristol Post, South Wales Echo, Stoke Sentinel, Plymouth Herald or the Bradford Telegraph and Argus all much larger communities in dire need of having a revamp? Question your logic one or two papers fine, but the incessant need to add every paper from the area means we are very underwhelmed in other regions.

  17. Deleting Bookmarked Articles

    I would like to be able to delete bookmarked articles. I have some which have turned out not to be relevant to the family I am researching. So many of our ancestors have the same names!

  18. Not more Middlesex?

    Tiresome
    Unimaginative
    And considering lots of areas are currently underdeveloped ie Yorkshire, South Wales and South West, South Coast, East London and East Mids is a smack in the face to many loyal subscribers!!
