This week we added 93,698 new pages to the Archive. We added two brand new titles and additional pages to 14 existing titles. For our brand new titles this week we are particularly delighted to announce the addition of The Illustrated War News for the First World War. We have also added the Colchester Gazette for Essex, a paper still in circulation today. Our additions this week included adding new years to several of our Welsh titles, and to the Volunteer Service Gazette and Military Dispatch and the Poor Law Unions’ Gazette.
The Illustrated War News is an incomparable resource for imagery of the First World War. The publication includes images from both the battle and home-fronts. Whether your interest is in the famous battles of Ypres or the Somme, the contribution of women to the war effort, or how rationing affected the home-front, this publication is an essential resource.
By clicking on the titles below, you can discover more about these brand new titles. Details will include the publication range and what we plan to add to The Archive in the future.

With this week’s additions we’ve added to the Newry Reporter for Ireland, and the ‘booksellers newspaper’ The Globe. We have also added to nine of our existing Welsh titles, including two Welsh language titles: Y Genedl Gymreig and Y Goleuad.
The addition of further years to The Poor Law Unions’ Gazette may help you discover relatives who absconded from their families, and give you insight into the workings of community care before social welfare and the NHS.
