"Huge amount" of Irish content to join British Newspaper Archive soon

Earlier today I asked the British Newspaper Archive ( via Twitter,when it was planning to release any further Irish material - because, let's face it, we've been getting scraps really since the whole thing started. I've just received the following response:

"We're already on the case - a huge amount of material from across Ireland coming later in the year!"

Watch this space... Updates will apparently be posted at

(With thanks to Ian Tester)


Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And FindmyPast - please reinstate the original Scottish census citations on your new site.
