British Newspaper Archive: About

The British Newspaper Archive is a partnership between the British Library and Findmypast to digitise the British Library’s vast collection of newspapers.

We are scanning millions of pages of historical newspapers and making them available online for the first time ever.

You can now search hundreds of millions of articles by keyword, name, location, date or title and watch your results appear in an instant.

Compare this with hours of painstaking manual searching through hard copies or microfilm (often requiring a visit to the British Library in London or Yorkshire) and it is easy to appreciate the ground-breaking nature of this project.

The British Newspaper Archive contains around three million pages of newspaper content originally funded as part of a £3m contribution from JISC. This was an important initiative that contributed greatly to the British Library’s digitisation of their historic newspapers.

British Newspaper Archive: What Can I Find?

  • News Articles – read about national events, as well as issues of local and regional importance. News articles are your window into daily life in historical Britain.
  • Family Notices – search for your family’s birth, marriage and death notices plus related announcements including engagements, anniversaries, birthdays and congratulations.
  • Letters – read letters to the editor written by the newspaper’s readers, including illuminating contemporary debates, aspirations and anxieties.
  • Obituaries – view a wealth of contemporary information on the lives of notable individuals and ancestors.
  • Advertisements – these include classifieds, shipping notices and appointments..Illustrations – see photographs, engravings, graphics, maps and editorial cartoons.

British Newspaper Archive: What does the collection cover?

The British Library’s newspaper collections are among the finest in the world, containing most of the runs of newspapers published in the UK since 1800.

The scale of the newspaper publishing industry from the early 19th century onwards is enormous, with many cities and towns publishing several newspapers simultaneously, often aimed at distinct audiences depending on social status, geographical location and political affiliation. The first stage of this project focused on runs published before

1900 and titles from cities such as Birmingham, Derby, Manchester, Nottingham, Norwich, Leeds and York, along with local titles from London boroughs.

Newspapers which aimed for county circulation – from Staffordshire to Sussex – also feature prominently, providing an unrivalled picture of provincial life spanning the whole of the 19th century.

We’re now also adding a wealth of material from the 20th century, right up to the 1950s.
