I love this newspaper search and have found several articles on my ancestors. I recommend it to genealogists. Looking forward to using again.

I note that the disparity between English counties with the most recent newspaper included has increased!

There is now coverage in West Yorkshire (where BNA scanning is done) up to 1955.

The English counties with the least modern coverage are: Herefordshire 1867, Shropshire 1869, Norfolk 1870, Cumbria 1871 and Wiltshire 1871 The next earliest is Worcestershire 1896.
