The Northern Whig joins British Newspaper Archive

I've just spotted that The Northern Whig has joined the line-up of titles now available online at British Newspaper Archive.So far, some 930-odd issues are available, covering January 1868 to December 1870.

The Liberal Protestant newspaper was founded in 1824 in Belfast, changed its name to the Northern Whig and Belfast Post in June 1919 and ceased publication in 1963.

This seems a good opportunity to remind you that the British Newspaper Archive is offering a month's full access to its database for just £1. You need to sign up by 24 August. See the full details in last week's blogpost.
