Drogheda Independent joins British News Archive

The Drogheda Independent has joined the online British Newspaper Archive. 72 editions from selected editions published 1915, 1916 and 1922, and all editions published in 1990-1995 have joined the database so far, but the holding will eventually span 1890 to 2005.

The British Newspaper Archive can be accessed via its dedicated site (click image), but is also available in its entirety as part of a FindMyPast Pro/Ultimate or World subscription (see current discount offer).

Its Irish collection includes 159 titles from Ireland; five of them target Drogheda specifically:  Drogheda Argus & Leinster Journal, Drogheda Conservative Journal, The Drogheda Independent, Drogheda Journal (Meath & Louth Advertiser) and Drogheda News Letter, making it an excellent archive for those with family connections from the county.
