British Newspapers Archive

A new Genealogy online resource has been added to our offerings. Like Ancestry and Find My Past, the British Newspapers Archive can only be used by patrons in the library.
Millions of pages of historical newspapers from the United Kingdom and Ireland are being progressively added and made available online for the first time. Search articles by keyword, name, location, date or title and watch your results appear in an instant. Search news articles for national events, as well as issues of local and regional importance. News articles are your window into daily life in historical Britain.
Search for your family's birth, marriage and death notices plus related announcements including engagements. Read letters to the editor, obituaries, advertisements and more.
Please note: Researchers are asked to register for the first time when using the BNA, and to sign in when they access the database each time. You will be able to save personal searches, bookmark articles and more.
Let us know what discoveries you might find in your family history.

The resource can be accessed via this link: (scroll down to second last link)
