New Resource available at Hornsby Library

We have been advised by Neil Chippendale that Hornsby Library has taken out a subscription to an additional online database, The British Newspaper Archive. “The British Newspaper Archive is a partnership between the British Library and findmypast to digitise up to 40 million newspaper pages from the British Library’s vast collection over the next 10 years.

This is an amazing resource for those with ancestors from the UK. Items I have found there include notices of births and deaths, obituaries, details of divorces, stories about bankrupt ancestors, military details and suspicious fires in an ancestor’s warehouse.

If you need help learning to use this resource please ask one of the Library’s Local Studies staff or seek assistance from a member of our group who is familiar with the resource.
