Wexford People joins British Newspaper Archive
The Wexford People has joined the British Newspaper Archive.

When first launched in 1853, the publication was known simply as The People. It became The Wexford People in 1994 and continues as a weekly tabloid serving Wexford Town and County Wexford.

Editions uploaded so far span the years 1856 to 1896, with gaps, and the digital archive plans to eventually include all years 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). It includes 158 titles from Ireland; four of them target Wexford specifically: Wexford Conservative, Wexford Constitution, Wexford Independent and Wexford People, making it a great archive for those with family connections from the county.
