All I wanted was york evening press about 1960 or York newspapers about 1925 but none exist!
SO……..

Sometimes subscribers have regular searches that they would like to perform whenever a new set of titles (or new dates for titles) is added. So an excellent feature would be to have a “search the latest additions only” option that would automatically include all pages added in the past month, and only those pages. That way one could find in one go anything relevant to one’s research without duplicating pages already read. Can the programmers implement this suggestion please?

Is there any particular reason why there are no newspapers from the Black Country – e.g. Express and Star (Britain’s biggest regional paper – so they tell us) or County Express or Dudley Herald?

Just to support Tim Harding’s excellent suggestion. For long term regular users like me this would avoid a lot of duplication and time wasting.
