      The British Library and Brightsolid are working in partnership to digitize
      British historical newspapers. The website offers access to up to 4 million
      fully searchable pages, featuring more than 200 newspaper titles from every
      part of the UK and Ireland. While there are "only" 4 million pages digitized
      as of today, thousands of new pages will be added to the collection daily
      until they reach 40 million pages..over the next 10 years. The newspapers
      mainly date from the 19th century, but includes runs dating back to the
      first half of the 18th century.
      See: http://www1.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/

      You need to register to search the archives. Registration is easy and free.
      A list of all publications and dates are available on the website, as is the
      possibility to browse by location. All searching is free on this site but it
      costs to view images in the viewer.

      To purchase a subscription and learn about the charges go to:
      https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/payments
      One can purchase a 2 day package, a monthly package or a yearly package.

      I have no affiliation with Brightsolid or the British Library. This is
      posted solely for information for those who may be researching Great Britain
      historical newspapers.
