The British Newspaper Archive holds historical papers dating back to the 18th-century, although its core archive dates from the 1800s. Some 22million pages are online, with more being added almost daily. They span England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, with the Irish collection currently made up of 150 publications (41 published in Northern Ireland and 109 from the Republic).
In addition to the new 3-month package, the BNA has today launched a Yorkshire and London local history campaign, which may be of interest to those whose Irish ancestors emigrated and settled in those regions. You can sample these archives with three free page views by following the links.
