Transcripts may include your ancestor's age at death, death year, burial location and inscription. Inscriptions can reveal the names of relatives as well as other biographical details.

British & Irish Newspaper Update
This week we have added 182,823 brand new pages including six brand new London titles to our collection. This week's new additions span the first half of the nineteenth century and include the world’s first ever evening newspaper, the Star (London). Our most recent update also includes the Statesman (London) and the Express (London). The Statesman (London) was a daily title owned by Robert Wardell, but the newspaper went out of print in 1824 when Wardell sailed to Australia to found the country’s first ever independent newspaper, The Australian. Also now available to search is the Express (London), printed by William Anselm Jones in the mid-1800s, the British Press, a daily newspaper published in London in the early 1800s, and the Press (London), a Saturday paper from the mid-1800s.
