BritishNewspaperArchive updates holdings of six Irish titles

The (BNA) has not added any new historical Irish newspaper to its huge (now more than 68million-pages) database since March. However, in the last week, there's been a run of updates to plug gaps in some its existing Irish holdings, as follows: 

  • Dublin Evening Telegraph 1904 (1578 pages) 
  • Waterford Standard 1926 (816 pages) 
  • Belfast Telegraph 1900 (1,246) 
  • Weekly Freeman's Journal 1845-1849, 1897 (2,868) 
  • Roscommon Messenger  1922 (308 pages) 
  • Ulster Gazette 1885 (208 pages) 

These updates will also be added to sister database FindMyPast where all 253 Irish BNA titles are available to those with a PRO or PREMIUM subscription.
