Sunday Post added to British Newspaper Archive

The British Newspaper Archive has added Scottish title the Sunday Post from 1915-1950 to its site at - I think it is a complete run, but there may well be gaps. Keep an eye out for Oor Wullie and The Broons!

The site locates it in the Glasgow, Lanarkshire category, but from what I can see it was actually founded and published in Dundee by DC Thompson in 1914 (

Also newly added are issues of the Paisley Herald and Renfrewshire Advertiser from 1870


My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My Scottish land and church records ebooks are available at, whilst my next Pharos Scottish course, Scottish Research Online, starts Sep 4th - see Time to smash a few brick walls...!


  1. are there any Francis Gay's little verses available to read

  2. No idea - but you should be able to freely search the title to see, and then pay to see them if there are
