The British Newspaper Archive is now Live!


Have British Ancestors?  For those that do, there is an online digital British Newspaper Archive becoming available!  The British Library and brightsolid will be digitizing up to 40 million newspaper pages from the British Library's vast collection (which contains most of the runs of newspapers published in the UK since 1800) over the next 10 years.

You can search for FREE.  Results can be filtered by date, newspaper, region, county and place.  To actually see any found entries there are several subscription options available ranging from 2 day to 12 month access.
