BNA Irish newspapers added to FindmyPast Ireland

FindmyPast Ireland (www.findmypast.ie) has added the missing part of the British Newspaper Archive (www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk) to its collection, with The Belfast Morning News, The Belfast Newsletter, The Cork Examiner, The Dublin Evening Mail, The Freeman's Journal and The Sligo Champion now available. Prior to this release FindmyPast UK (www.findmypast.co.uk) had made the British Newspaper Archive available on its site, but without the Irish titles. The BNA is a ten year project between Brightsolid and the British Library, which aims to get 40 million pages of newspaper content online.

The Irish titles should presumably be available shortly on any FindmyPast platform via a world subscription, or on the British and Irish subscription via FindmyPast UK.

For more on the release visit www.findmypast.ie/articles/world-records/full-list-of-the-irish-family-history-records/irish-newspaper-archives.
