We’ve added 210,632 historical newspaper pages to the Archive in the last seven days. The latest additions include one brand new title – North Star and Farmers’ Chronicle. This Scottish paper was founded in 1893 and still exists today, now simply known as North Star. The paper mainly covers the old county of Ross & Cromarty taking in the towns of Dingwall, Tain, Alness and Invergordon.
835 issues of North Star and Farmers’ Chronicle, containing over 6,400 pages have been released spanning the years 1895-1903 and 1905-1911. This release takes our total coverage for Scotland to over 400,000 pages.
As well as our brand new addition to the Archive, we’ve also spent the last week supplementing the coverage of existing papers. 13 newspapers have had extra pages and year coverage added to them – two from Aberdeen in Scotland, two from Ireland (Cork and Sligo) and nine from England. The local and regional English publications hail from Birmingham, Coventry, Cumbria, East Sussex, Kent, Newcastle, Norfolk and Wiltshire.
We’ve also added generously to one of our national newspapers, The Daily Mirror. See below for details on all updated titles and hit their name to explore each one further.
