It’s been a busy week at the Archive. We’ve added 191,119 pages to the archive. We have 13 brand new titles to share with you, and have updated 18 existing titles.
With the addition of The Leitrim Advertiser this past week we are delighted to say that we now have a newspaper for every county in Ireland. This brings the number of titles we have for Ireland to 150. This week we also added The Portadown Times for County Armagh to the Archive, and we will continue to digitise newspapers for Ireland.
Also joining the Archive this week are nine new papers for England including two for Lancashire, and one each for Buckinghamshire, Leicestershire, Devon, Sussex, Suffolk, Berkshire, Essex. Also newly added this week is the Stornoway Gazette and West Coast Advertiser, this newspaper covers the historic area of Ross and Cromarty which includes the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.
