British Newspaper Archive reaches 18million pages

Seven Irish titles were added last month alone
The online British Newspaper Archive (BNA) has reached another important milestone having clocked up a new total of more than 18 million pages (18,025,021, to be precise) in its online archive. That's two million pages added in just over two months, which is a pretty impressive rate of digitisation.

There are now 721 titles in the archive; 102 of them were published in the Republic of Ireland, 34 of them in Northern Ireland. As well as being available for search and view on the dedicated BNA site via subscription, the Irish titles are included in FindMyPast's Ireland subscription.

The entire collection is accessible via FindMyPast's World subscription.
