The British Newspaper Archive (FindMyPast)

Please contact the Family History Desk for access details.
The collection contains most of the runs of newspapers published in the UK since 1800. The first stage of this project focused on runs published before 1900 and titles from cities such as Birmingham, Derby, Manchester, Nottingham, Norwich, Leeds and York, along with local titles from London boroughs. Material from the 20th century, right up to the 1950s, is continuing to be added.
