    Many of you won't have a sub to the British Newspaper Archive or FMP and would still like to see if you can find anything pertaining to your research in newspapers. For some time now, the National Library of Wales has had Welsh newspapers online - for free :)

    Although, obviously biased towards Welsh news, there can be found all manner of news reports, articles etc. from all over the British Isle (and abroad). The coverage is from 1804-1919 and the site can be found at

    Thanks Ann. My first search found an article locating a family member in 1835, in Hertfordshire.
