Please note that access to this resource has changed during the library closure. Please click on the button below to be taken to a page where you will need to log in with your Wyndham City Libraries barcode and PIN for access. Follow the instructions to use Find My Past after you have logged in.
The British Newspaper Archive
The British Newspaper Archive Database is an ongoing project and new scanned images are added daily. Explore over 200 years of British history.
Unfortunately the British Newspaper Archive itself is not accessible remotely due to the platform that the site is hosted on. However, it is possible to access the newspapers on the British Newspaper Archive through Findmypast – to do this you simply click search on the top of the homepage and then click Newspapers and periodicals (this is essentially the same as the British Newspaper Archive but is just updated a bit slower i.e. pages added to the BNA this week won’t be available until next week).
We've got some tips for you about Exploring Newspapers on Findmypast:
To access Findmypast, please have your library card and password/pin handy.
This website features photographs, stories, oral histories, interactive maps, exhibits, timelines and more.
Wyndham Libraries is an Affiliate library with FamilySearch. This gives you access to 60% of the restricted records when you access the service through one of our library PCs. Some resources are not available during the library closure.
