Ninth historical Waterford title joins BritishNewspaperArchive

Another Irish historical newspaper has been added to the BritishNewspaperArchive.co.uk (BNA) database, which is shared with some subscriptions on FindMyPast (FMP).

It's the Evening News (Waterford). More than 3,950 editions are already available to search and view, with the holding ultimately expected to span 1899 to 1914.

Researchers with ancestors from Waterford City and County are well served by the BNA (and FMP). Eight other titles that cover the area were already held in the database. They are, Waterford Chronicle, Waterford Mail, Waterford Mirror & Tramore Visitor, Waterford News, Waterford News Letter, Waterford Standard, Waterford Star, and the Munster Express. Including today's new title, Waterford now accounts for for more than 33,000 editions in the online BNA. They span 1824–1953.
