This week we’ve added to the Coleraine Chronicle, a newspaper which was used extensively in Fearne Cotton’s episode of Who Do You Think You Are?.  We now hold almost 3,500 issues of this paper for the north of Ireland.

Also updated this week is the Gravesend Reporter.  The paper served the counties on both sides of the River Thames, Kent and Essex.  We currently hold over 2,700 issues for this paper, between the years 1856 and 1909.
