British Newspaper Archive passes 32m pages milestone online British Newspaper Archive (BNA) has a new milestone to celebrate today: more than 32 million pages of historical publications are now available to search in its database.

In total, more than 1,000 titles are now online via the BNA, all uploaded since the digitisation programme was launched in 2010.  Of these, 175 are Irish newspapers, and of that total, 50 are classed as Northern Ireland publications.

The entire database is shared with sister company FindMyPast, depending on which subscription you purchase. On FindMyPast, the database is split into the British Newspapers Collection and the Irish Newspapers Collection.
