Illustrated London News on The Genealogist

A small update I've overlooked from the end of August concerning the Illustrated London News collection on TheGenealogist (

Illustrated London News
We have now completed the 1880s decade of this hugely informative newspaper.

The 1880s saw Jack the Ripper terrorise the streets of Whitechapel, the end of the first Boer War, as well as the attempted assasination of the Queen.

This gives us complete coverage from 1842 (the year the paper started) to 1889, as crystal clear, searchable copies.

Each issue is bookmarked by article and is easily searchable. They contain many announcements of Births, Marriages, Deaths, Obituaries, Wills & Bequests.
